CORINTH, Miss. (KNOE 8 News/AP) - Bond has set at $1.2 million for a suspect in the deaths of two brothers who died in a weekend house fire in Corinth.

Sirdon Capanion Greer is charged with two counts of first degree murder and one count of arson after being arrested in the fatal shooting brothers James and Jerry Copeland and setting their home on fire.

Municipal Judge John C. Ross Jr. set bond at $500,000 for each count of murder and another $200,000 for arson during Greer's initial appearance in court Tuesday.

Police say an autopsy shows each of the Copelands were shot in the head before the house was set on fire.

The bodies were found in the back of the home after firefighters extinguished the blaze.
