LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A man convicted of killing two University of Louisville students during a drug deal in 2004 was arrested on gun charges this week.

But he's already out of jail, on home incarceration.

Isiah Fugett was charged with murder, but pleaded guilty to manslaughter and tampering with evidence in the deaths of Eric Ray and Robert Robbins.

Both men were shot outside a downtown Louisville hotel.

Fugett was given a 20-year sentence, but was released early.

He was arrested Monday night after a traffic stop in Phoenix Hill when police say they found a gun under the driver's seat.

Fugett is not allowed to own a firearm because of his felony convictions.

That led to a new felony charge and three misdemeanors.

Wednesday afternoon a judge released Fugett on home incarceration.
