LaGrange police arrests 2 in murder

Police in LaGrange, Ga. have arrested two suspects in the April 17 murder of Denorrius Spearman, 24, of LaGrange and are searching for a third.

Arrested on Aug. 13 was Jakiel Anthony, 22, of 1400 Boxwood Blvd. in Columbus.

Arrested on Aug. 14 was Shannon Russell, 26, of 613 South Greenwood Street in LaGrange. Both are in the Troup County Jail.

Still at large is Cedric Burks, 21, of 301 Mulberry St. in LaGrange.

Spearman was found shot to death on Easy Street near the Banks Street intersection in LaGrange.
