From the Associated Press:

One of the two men accused in the shooting death of a Coastal Carolina University student is now facing charges in a 2012 homicide.

The Sun News of Myrtle Beach reports ( 23-year-old Stephon McLain Jr. of Conway was charged Friday with murder in connection with the death of 44-year-old Herbert Deas Jr.

Horry County Deputy Coroner Tony Hendrick said Deas died Sept. 13, 2012 from multiple gunshot wounds to his upper body.

McLain has been jailed since March 8 when he was arrested by officers in Mansfield, Ohio in connection with the Feb. 26 shooting death of Coastal Carolina sophomore Anthony Darnell Liddell.

The 19-year-old Liddell was shot to death at University Place near Coastal Carolina, which led to a campus-wide lockdown while police searched for a suspect.
