Posted December 4, 2012

— Fayetteville police are looking for two suspects in connection with the beating death of a man earlier this summer.

Antwan Lee Bryant, 26, and Tony McGill are each charged with first-degree murder in the Aug. 23 death of Marcus Atherton.

Police say Atherton died as a result of blows to the head he received during a fight with several men.

Two other men have been charged in the case: Dwight Dewey Bristol, 22, and Carlos Antoine McFayden, 25.

Bristol was arrested in September. McFayden was arrested on Monday.

Anyone with information on Bryant's or McGill's whereabouts is asked to contact the Fayetteville Police Department at 910-587-3254.
