Plant City, Florida -- Plant City Police have charged 47-year-old Ruben Brooks with the murders of Shannon Thomas and Faye Kitchen back in November 2011.
Brooks was named a person of interest, during the investigation into the double murder at a home in the 500 block of East Ohio Street on Nov. 12, after detectives learned he was an acquaintance of the two women.
Brooks was picked up by police on an unrelated robbery charge in early January 2012 and, since that time, detectives have been investigating his possible involvement in the case.
On Monday, detectives finished their investigation and charged Brooks with two murder counts. He is still being held at the Hillsborough County Jail and is awaiting his first appearance on the new charges.
