A manhunt is over for a double murder suspect accused of killing his ex-girlfriend and another woman.

Tyrone Williams, 30, was taken into custody after more than eight hours on the run in Hunt County.

The victims are identified as Nichole Elizabeth Gonzales, 27, and Vicki Ann Gonzales, 51, according to the Hunt County Sheriff's Office. 

The Commerce Police Department and the Hunt County Sheriff's Office responded to a home in the 7300 block of Highway 50 after receiving a 911 call from the home around 1:30 p.m. on Friday.

During the 911 call, dispatchers heard a woman screaming in the background.

"A woman was screaming. We could hear other noises in the background," said Sheriff Randy Meeks. "She was just screaming, 'Don't, Tyrone! Don't, Tyrone!'"

Once officers arrived at the home, two woman were found dead. An 18-month-old and a newborn baby were found in the home unharmed.They were turned over to CPS.

Williams' vehicle was found three miles south of the murder scene.

Williams has a short criminal record. The sheriff says he was arrested once before for theft and also confirmed they'd been out to the home before to investigate him for a vandalism case. He said Williams may have slashed the tires and keyed a car at the home before.

Officials said he worked for a Fort Worth-based trucking company.
