May 27, 2010 11:45:00 AM - thestate.com

Columbia police arrested and charged two men this week suspected in the robbery and beating death of a North Carolina man earlier this month.

John Wesley Boyce, 43, of Columbia, was arrested Wednesday and charged with murder and attempted armed robbery, the Columbia Police Department said.

His arrest followed the May 22 arrest of Marvin L. Jennings, 52, of Cayce, who is charged with attempted armed robbery and assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature.

On May 6 at 1120 Pine Street, Morris Jones, 53, of Gastonia, N.C., was beaten and shot in the chest in an apparent robbery attempt. He died from his injuries a few days after the attack, police said.
