      MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (WCIV) - A second suspect has been arrested in the deaths of a Mount Pleasant couple in the Caribbean country of St. Maarten.

      The 17-year-old suspect is identified only by initials - J.C.M. - in a news release from the prosecutor's office in St. Maarten.

      A spokesman for the prosecutor's office said the teen was arrested Monday afternoon.

      "Further arrests cannot be excluded," he said.

      Michael and Thelma King were found dead inside their beachside condominium in St. Maarten last month.

      Another man, Meyshane Johnson, is being held in connection with their deaths. He is scheduled to appear before a judge Wednesday.
