Two men who are persons of interest in the disappearance of a Weatherford girl are behind bars for a murder here in the metro.

Gilberto Paz and Curtis Southerland were arrested as investigators interviewed them in the missing person case.

The missing person investigation helped police uncover information linking Paz and Southerland to a crime scene in southeast Oklahoma City in September.

Jaray's parents are hoping the arrest will lead to a break in the case, but say they are emotionally exhausted after looking for Jaray for the last few weeks.

"Until somebody shows me hard facts that he did it. I have been through the ringer so many times I'm not believing no body no more," said Rodney Wilson, Jaray's father. 

Investigators are hopeful that solving this OKC case will bring in new leads.

Paz and Southerland are being held without bond right now in the Custer County Jail.
