— Police have arrested a second man in the beating death of a homeless Fayetteville man a week ago.

Guy Harold Harris III, 51, was charged with first-degree murder, robbery with a dangerous weapon and conspiracy to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon. Harris, who also is listed as being homeless, was being held without bond in the Cumberland County jail.

Passersby discovered the body of Linwood Scott Boahan, 60, in a parking lot in the 300 block of Ray Avenue last Sunday morning. Police said Boahan, who was 60 years old and homeless, appears to have died of blunt force trauma.

Darrell Edward Johnson, 36, who also is listed as being homeless, was charged last week with first-degree murder and robbery with a dangerous weapon in Boahan's death.

    Only if killed by a white person. Otherwise, it is not a way to further their cause.
