ROANOKE, VA -

Court records show potential movement in a near two-year-old unsolved double murder case in Roanoke.

Police found the bodies of Michael Smith and Joyce Payne inside their Old Southwest apartment back in April, 2011.

Investigators said both had been shot to death.

A new search warrant on file in Roanoke Circuit Court shows detectives are now analyzing the contents of a cell phone for potential evidence in the case.

No arrests have been made.

In the summer of 2011, another search warrant showed investigators were analyzing DNA evidence in the case.
