PELION, SC - Two men who investigators said shot and killed a Lexington County man during a transaction that began on Craigslist have been charged with murder.

Deputies say 22-year-old Justin Antonio Butler was arrested Friday at the Muscle Shoals, Alabama, complex where he lives. Twenty-six-year-old Terry Renee McClure, was already in jail in Fairfield, California, when South Carolina authorities put a detainer on him.

Lexington County Sheriff James Metts says the suspects arranged to meet brothers 29-year-old Tycus Metricus Toland and 33-year-old Vonkeith Toland to buy a car outside a Pelion home April 26.

Metts says when the brothers men arrived at the home, the suspects burst out and shot the brothers.

Tycus "Tike" Toland, who was married and had a toddler son, died at the scene.

Older brother, Vonkeith Toland is still being hospitalized and as of Monday -- more than 2 weeks after the shooting -- is in critical condition.

It wasn't known if the defendants had attorneys.
