Nearly three months after a brutal double murder in rural Walker County, an arrest has been made.

On July 24, 2013 Walker County authorities say Howard Lewis murdered his 18-month-old son Aiyden Lewis and then beat the baby's grandmother, 55-year-old Shanta Faye Crawford, to death inside her house.

Crawford's husband found the two dead inside.

We're told DNA found at the crime scene linked Lewis to the crimes.

Authorities suggest the crimes may have been fueled by an on-going custody battle over the infant.

Lewis is being held on one million dollars bail.
