The DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office has arrested a suspect in the murder of two men in unincorporated DeKalb County last December.
Arrest warrants for Russell Rijon McNeal, 26, of Atlanta, received on Feb. 7, allege that McNeal shot Michael Varnell Wigfall, Jr., and Robert Sean Collier, causing their deaths. According to the warrants charging Mr. McNeal with felony murder, the incidents took place at a residence on Old Lake Drive in DeKalb between Dec. 9 and Dec. 10.
