RIVERTON, Wyo. — The ongoing investigation into the deaths of Eric Likes and Elva Quiver has resulted in yet another arrest on multiple felony counts.

The Fremont County Sheriff and Wyoming DCI arrested a 15 year old juvenile male Wednesday afternoon, in connection with the murder, robbery, and arson that occurred in Hudson, Wyoming, last November. He was arrested at a residence on Eagle Drive in Riverton, without incident.

The juvenile has been charged as an adult, alleging two counts of first degree murder, two counts of conspiracy to commit first degree murder, first degree arson, two counts of aggravated robbery, and two counts of conspiracy to commit aggravated robbery. The suspect is confined in the Fremont County Jail on a $1,000,000 bond, and is expected to be arraigned today.

He now joins the three others arrested earlier for first-degree murder, arson and robbery. They are 19-year-old Laziur Hanway, and 20-year-olds Joseph Jenkins and Samantha Hanway.

Fremont County Sheriff’s Capt. Ryan Lee said officials were not aware of the juvenile’s involvement until further details on the case developed late Tuesday afternoon and early Wednesday morning.

He said further arrests could follow regarding peripheral suspects who were not directly involved, but had knowledge of the crime or helped conceal it from the public and the authorities.
