The Manatee County Sheriff's Office has arrested a man in connection with the abductions and murders of two people earlier this week.

Dwayne Cummings, 38, was charged with armed kidnapping Thursday in the cases of Karl Tuxford and Jordan Finlon. Murder charges are pending.

Karl Tuxford, 38, was found dead in his vehicle on Eighth Avenue in Bradenton Tuesday.

Jordan Finlon, 23, was found dead Tuesday afternoon in a wooded area off Bishop Harbor Road in Palmetto.

Deputies believe the two cases were drug related.
