TALLADEGA - AL -

Talladega County investigators have announced the arrests of two teenagers in the murder of 19-year-old Cameron McGlothan.

Investigators have charged 19-year-old Justin Hamilton from Chelsea and 18-year-old Demarcus Samuels from Sylacauga with capital murder and robbery 1st degree. They are being held in the Talladega County jail with no bond.

Hamilton, a friend of McGlothan's, has been in the Shelby County Detention Center since March. He wasn't charged with the crime until Thursday.

"We can't control timelines," said Talladega County Sheriff Jimmy Kilgore. "We were waiting results on some things that we needed to get to obtain warrants."

McGlothan's body was discovered in early March 12 in Sycamore. The 19-year-old's family reported him missing after he left his Shelby County home with a friend March 5.

"It certainly has to be a horrendous deal for the family," added Sheriff Kilgore.
