Two men charged with murder in a home invasion were charged in connection with a second murder on Thursday, and Metro police said they think there may be more victims out there.
Video: Process Server Suspected In Hooters Killing
Gregory Hover and Richard Freeman are accused of abducting and killing a Hooters Casino worker last month.
Police said the two men may be part of a crime spree that's been going on since late last year. The suspects are in custody, but police said they are looking for more victims and witnesses.

Prisma Contreras, 21, was an assistant server at the Mad Onion restaurant inside the Hooters Casino. She left work the morning of Jan. 14 and was found dead the next day. On Thursday, Metro police said Gregory Hover, 38, and Richard Freeman, 18, killed her.
These two individuals were the ones who abducted her from her place of employment, kept her for a substantial period of time, subjecting her to horrific events, said Metro Line Capt. Randy Montandon.
The horrific events included sexual assault, and then Conteraras was reportedly stabbed several times and set on fire in an abandoned vehicle.
The gentleman liked to talk about his crimes to other people and that's pretty much how we were able to initially link the two crimes, Montandon said.
On Jan. 25, police said Hover went to the home of Julio and Roberta Romero under the guise of his job as a process server and returned later, killing Julio and shooting his wife in the face.
Well, I'm pretty certain he has killed at least two people, and there's no telling how many more victims we may discover, Montandon said.
Metro is now on a search for more witnesses who came into contact with the two suspects.
I believe we're going to discover many, many more victims, and this could take the timeframe back substantially longer than originally we were looking at, Montandon said.
Both Hover and Freeman are due in court Friday morning to be arraigned on the new charges.
Police said they believe Hover and Freeman are responsible for more crimes. Anyone with information is asked to call police at 702-828-3521.
