GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Nearly two years after a couple was found shot to death inside a burning Taylors home, deputies have arrested two men in connection with the crime.

On April 3, 2011, firefighters were called to 204-A E. Lee Rd. Once firefighters arrived, they found the bodies of 30-year-old Christopher Porcoro, of Taylors, and 18-year-old Amber Daniel, of Greer, lying near the front door of the home.

Greenville County investigators said they determined that the fire had been started after the couple was killed. A few weeks after the fire, 18-year-old Manuel Granados, of Swannanoa, NC, was arrested and found in possession of a revolver, which was later identified as the gun used to kill the couple.

On Tuesday, Greenville County deputies and U.S. Marshals arrested Granados at a relative's apartment in Greenville.

Late Tuesday night, Greenville County Bond Court confirmed a second man, Scott Lowe, had been arrested in connection with this case.

Lowe went before a judge around 2:30 a.m. Wednesday, where the courtroom was full of family members for both him and the two victims.

Granados and Lowe are both charged with murder and both men are being held without bond at the Greenville County Detention Center.
