SHERMAN, Texas (KXII) -- Police arrested two suspects on Wednesday in connection of the murder of Brandon Hubert.

Hubert was 32 years old.

Hubert was murdered on Aug. 11, while he was working at the front desk of the Quality Inn and Suites.

Nearly two weeks ago Sherman police released these photos of a woman they considered a person of interest in Brandon Hubert's murder.

Sgt. D.M. Hampton tell us they now know that woman is 19-year-old Karalyn Marie Cross.

"She is the person of interest that we had posted. Thanks to good investigative leads and tips from the public she was able to be identified."

Both Cross and 24 year-old Nikeya Grant were arrested on capital murder warrants Wednesday.

"We're happy that these two arrests were made and were hoping that they get the other person into custody and we can continue this investigation," said Hampton.

But the search for another suspect continues in South Carolina.

Reginald Campbell, 24, is wanted on three federal warrants: robbery, possession of a firearm in commission of a violent crime, and unlawful flight to avoid prosecution.

All crimes associated with the night Hubert was killed.

"He is not currently wanted for murder in the State of Texas," said Hampton.

These warrants were issued by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms through the Eastern District Court in Texas.

Hampton says although the public's help was a big part in these arrests, he says lots of police work from multiple departments helped as well.

"This is the first step in the satisfaction of us knowing that we had a crime and were able to solve it," Hampton said.

Cross was taken into custody at 2:51 p.m., without incident in the 300 block of West Texas Street in Denison.

Grant was arrested without incident at 3 p.m. in the 900 block of South Travis Street in Sherman.

Cross and Grant were booked into the Grayson County Jail on capital murder charges.
