KILLEEN, Texas (KWTX) Philmon Chambers, 30, of Decatur, Ga., remained in the Bell County Jail Thursday after federal and local law enforcement officers arrested him Wednesday in Killeen in connection with a deadly shooting in December in Athens, Ga.

A second suspect, Andrea Browner, 24, of Athens, Ga., was arrested later in the day Wednesday by Athens-Clarke County police in Georgia.

Chambers is charged with malice murder and Browner is facing a felony murder charge, authorities said.

The charges stem from the shooting death of Rodriguez Rucker on Dec. 14 in Athens.

Both charges carry a possible death penalty under Georgia's penal code.

The two suspects are known associates, Athens police said.
