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.

Following a search of the vehicle, deputies found a loaded handgun on the front seat of the vehicle.  Investigators with the Bee County Sheriff's Office seized the weapon for evidence and impounded the vehicle. 

Deputies contacted authorities in Brazoria County and Gordin and Weekley were both transferred to Brazoria County. 

At this time, no further details have been released on the murder case or the victim.  Action 10 News will continue to follow this story and bring you more updates when they become available.
