Michael Webb and Rashad Brown are both being charged as Accessories after the fact to Voluntary Manslaughter.

Police say the charges stem from actions taken by the suspects to mislead investigators and help Jeriamyah Fortner avoid responsibility.

Michael Webb was taken into custody in North Carolina, and will be taken back to West Virginia. Rashad Brown is still being sought after by local police.

Anyone with information pertaining to Brown's location or the investigation is encouraged to contact the Beckley Police Department at (304)256-1720.
