COLUMBUS, Ga — Two men accused of murdering a local homeless man are set to appear in court Tuesday.
Court records say 21-year-old Daquon Chisholm and 29-year-old Brian Harris both face charges for murder, armed robbery, and possession of a knife or firearm during the commission of a felony in connection to the death of William “Billy” Edwards.
As News 3 reported, Edwards was found dead in a tent under the 2nd Avenue bridge in July 2015. Police say he died from blunt force trauma to the head.
Police arrested Chisholm and Harris one week and a half later in August.
