BOYNTON BEACH (CBSMiami/AP) — The wheels of justice don’t stop turning just because it’s a holiday.

Authorities say a Florida man has been charged in the shooting deaths of two people on New Year’s Eve.

A Palm Beach Post report says 26-year-old Joseph Bruny Jr. of Boynton Beach was denied bond Monday morning.

He faces charges of first-degree murder and armed robbery with a firearm.

Boynton Beach Police arrested Bruny on Sunday, shortly after finding the two male victims in a carport. Police said guns were found under each body.

A police report says Bruny told investigators he had sold marijuana to the men, and a confrontation started when he attempted to collect a debt Sunday.

In a WPEC-TV report , relatives identified the victims as 24-year-old Malcolm Frederick and 21-year-old Jamal Frederick.

Palm Beach County jail records did not show whether Bruny had retained an attorney.
