OKLAHOMA CITY -

There are new developments in the investigation surrounding the so-called "Cathouse murders".

A pregnant HBO reality star and her friends died five years ago as their home was set on fire. Now, there are new suspects in the case. It happened in 2009, but authorities have made two more arrests in the case.

It's been five years since a home in southwest Oklahoma City caught fire, killing six people. Two of them were unborn babies. The story made national headlines because of one of the victims who died in the fire.

Brooke Phillips was a 21-year-old reality TV star on the HBO series "Cathouse."

Phillips left the brothel in Nevada and moved to Moore near family because she was pregnant. Four people, including Phillips and another pregnant woman, had been shot, stabbed and then set on fire before the home went up in flames. But now, years after the murders, two more people are in custody.

Thirty eight year old Johnathan Cochran was arrested by the US Marshal Service Wednesday at his home in Colcord, in northeastern Oklahoma, where he had been living with his wife and kids. He went out to check his mail, and that's when marshals nabbed him.

About the same time marshals were also zeroing in on 37-year-old Russell Hogshooter. They found him in a mobile home in a rural wooded area near Kansas, Okla. Hogshooter tried to run and took off out the backdoor, but ran right into the hands of marshals who were staked out in the trees.

Hogshooter was carrying a gun, but never fired any shots. Both men were booked into the Rogers County Jail where they were interviewed by Oklahoma City police detectives.

Both men were arrested on six counts of first-degree murder and one count of conspiracy to commit murder.

There are two other suspects in this case. David Tyner is serving a life sentence. Denny Phillips is awaiting trial which is set in March.
