JEFFERSONVILLE, Ind. (WHAS11) -- James Washington and Dana Eisenback were arrested at a Thornton's convenience store at 10th Street and Allison Lane Wednesday morning at about 5:30.

Washington and Eisenback were named as suspects after 55-year-old Robert Eader was found stabbed to death in his Spring Street apartment early Monday morning. Det. Todd Hollis said the homicide was a drug deal gone bad.

The suspects had gone to Missouri and returned. The suspects say they returned because they had just learned from family they were wanted. They say they returned to town to turn themselves in.

They both confessed to authorities. Washington is charged with murder in addition to the other crimes.
