PELION - Two men who investigators said shot and killed a Lexington County man during a transaction that began on Craigslist have been charged with murder.
Deputies say 22-year-old Justin Antonio Butler was arrested Friday at the Muscle Shoals, Alabama, complex where he lives. Twenty-six-year-old Terry Renee McClure was already in jail in Fairfield, California, when South Carolina authorities put a detainer on him.
Lexington County Sheriff James Metts said the suspects arranged to meet 29-year-old Tycus Metricus Toland and 33-year-old Vonkeith Toland to buy a car outside a Pelion home April 26.
Metts said that when the four men arrived at the home, the suspects shot the brothers. Tycus Toland died at the scene. Vonkeith Toland was hospitalized in critical condition.
It wasn't known if the defendants had attorneys.
