A man who shot and killed a father and son at their homes in two Cambridgeshire villages has been jailed for life.
A 33-year-old woman and 28-year-old man, both from Mildenhall, Suffolk, are on bail until 7 December after being arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to murder.
Stephen Alderton, 67, of no fixed abode, shot Joshua Dunmore, 32, twice in the hallway of his home in Meridian Close, Bluntisham, at 9.09pm on 29 March.
Thirty-one minutes later, he shot Gary Dunmore, 57, three times in the hallway of his home in The Row, Sutton, near Ely.
Alderton drove off in his motorhome but was arrested at about 1.30am the following day on the M5 near Worcester.
Alderton was interviewed by police but did not answer any questions and was charged with two counts of murder and one count of possession of a firearm.
In June he admitted the two counts of murder at Cambridge Crown Court.
He denied the firearms offence, which was ordered to lie on file.
On Friday he was jailed for life by His Honour Judge Mark Bishop.
The judge told him he would serve a minimum of 25 years, minus time already served.
DCI Katie Dounias, from the Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire, and Cambridgeshire major crime unit, said: “On 29 March, Stephen Alderton turned a family dispute playing itself out through the courts into a double tragedy by his rash and brutal actions.
“Our thoughts are with the family and friends of Gary and Josh at this difficult time.
“There is no sentence sufficient to heal the trauma they have endured but I hope today’s sentencing will provide some solace.”
In June, a 51-year-old man and a 22-year-old woman, both from Bristol, were arrested on suspicion of encouraging or assisting crime and were released under investigation.
