The Lewis & Clark County Sheriff’s Office said in a press release on Monday that Andrew Nam Duncan, a "person of interest" wanted for questioning following last week’s murder of a couple on Cayuse Road, has been taken into custody.

Sheriff Leo Dutton said that Duncan was arrested just before 8 p.m. on Sunday at a home in Helena.

According to Dutton, Duncan is being held on a petition to revoke, a warrant for felony theft, and misdemeanor charge of criminal possession of drug paraphernalia.

The bodies of David and Charla Taylor were discovered in their home on the 1300 block of Cayuse Road on the night of March 19.

Their son Kaleb faces two counts of felony deliberate homicide.

Two other suspects have also been charged for the murders: Journey Wieneke also faces two counts of deliberate homicide; Kyle Hamm has been charged with a single count of deliberate homicide.

Bond has been set at $500,000 for Taylor and Hamm.

Wieneke was due in Lewis & Clark County Justice Court on Monday afternoon.

Duncan has not been been named as a suspect in the murders.


(MARCH 23, 2018) A second suspect has been arrested in connection with a double murder in a Helena Valley subdivision.

Kyle Alexander Hamm was arrested and is scheduled to be seen in Justice Court on Friday on charges of deliberate homicide, tampering with evidence, possession of dangerous drugs, and burglary.

The bodies of David and Charla Taylor were found in their home on the 1300 block of Cayuse Road just before 10 p.m. on Monday.

A preliminary autopsy report found the couple had died from multiple blunt and sharp force trauma.

Police arrested their 20-year old son Kaleb Taylor and charged him with two counts of deliberate homicide. Court documents say Taylor confessed to the killings when questioned by police.

The Lewis & Clark County Sheriff’s Office named a second person of interested, Andrew Nam Duncan, on Wednesday night, but hadn’t identified Hamm until Friday morning.

Sheriff Dutton says Hamm was arrested around 7 p.m. on Thursday.

Investigators have had limited contact with Duncan and continue to search for him.

Sheriff Dutton did not detail what involvement Hamm is suspected of having in the murder.

Kaleb Taylor is currently being held in the Lewis & Clark County Detention Center on $500,000 bond.
