— Two days after recharging a 49-year-old Durham man in connection with a 2009 homicide, Raleigh police on Thursday announced that a 41-year-old Durham man has also been charged in the case.

Ivan McFarland, of 1904-301 Cole Mill Road, is charged with murder in the death of James Carol Deberry Jr. Deberry, 32, was found shot inside his apartment in the 5900 block of Shadetree Lane on Oct. 31, 2009. He later died at WakeMed.

James Harold Courtney III, of Bunch Drive in Durham, made a court appearance Wednesday, one day after he was recharged with murder in the case. Authorities have not released information about what led to the new arrests.

Courtney and another man were originally arrested in 2009 but released after a jury deadlocked in the case.

McFarland, who was being held at the Wake County jail early Thursday with no bond, will make a first court appearance at 2 p.m.
