      Second man charged in Magnolia double homicide

      MAGNOLIA, Ark. (AP) - Authorities have charged a second suspect in the fatal shooting of a Southern Arkansas University football player and a former student.

      The Columbia County Sheriff's Office says 23-year-old Timothy Johnson of Camden was charged Thursday with a terroristic act. The same charge was filed against 20-year-old Byron Dunn on Monday in the shooting.

      Police haven't said why they believe the men were involved in the killings.

      Southern Arkansas wide receiver Brandon Hobdy of Garland, Texas, and former student Wayne Payton were killed Sunday outside of a back-to-school party near Magnolia. The 23-year-old football player and 24-year-old former student died from their injuries at an area hospital.

      Both Dunn and Johnson are being held on $1 million bond. Online jail records didn't indicate attorneys.
