A man and woman suspected of murder are behind bars following a traffic stop in Beeville. 

It happened Saturday, October 7th just after 9 a.m. when deputies located stolen Chevy Camaro on HWY 59 East coming in from Goliad County.

Bee County Sheriff's Deputies had been notified to be on the lookout for the stolen vehicle that was believed to be headed towards the border of Brazoria County. 

Deputies and officers with the Beeville Police Department conducted a felony traffic stop of suspected stolen vehicle on Old Houston Highway, just off of HWY 59.
