Three suspects previously charged with the murder of a man from Bath, Beaufort County have now been indicted by a grand jury.
The Beaufort County Grand Jury indicted Arturo Lopez-Perez, Martel Weston, and Domonic Farrow for the original Murder charges and the additional charges of first degree burglary, first degree arson, armed robbery, and felony larceny. The one-million dollar bond was also increased by $100.000.
The Beaufort County Sheriff's Office says the three murdered 53-year-old Leonard Willson of Bath. Willson's body was found in his home on South Main Street October 7th.
Deputies say Willson was a paraplegic and he died from blunt force trauma to the head.
The Beaufort County Sheriff's Office says robbery seems to be a motive in the murder. Deputies found stolen computer equipment at the home where Weston was arrested. They say Willson was a mentor to 16-year-old Perez, and that the two knew each other for about a year.
