CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. (WAVY) - A fourth man wanted in connection to the deaths of two Virginia State University students has been arrested.
Marvell Edmondson and Jauwan Holmes, both 19, were completing an initiation to get into the "Men of Honor" organization by crossing the Appomattox River, according to officials.
The two were swept by a current around 1:30 a.m. and were reported missing. Their bodies were recovered days later.
Holmes is from Williamsburg and Edmondson is from Portsmouth.
James A. Mackey, Sr., Eriq K. Benson, and Cory Baytop were previously arrested and charged with five counts of hazing each in connection with the incident. A fourth man, Charles E. Zollicoffer II turned himself in Monday night.
All four are affiliated with the Men of Honor organization.
A company has been hired to complete the repairs to the Herbert C. Bonner Bridge on the Outer Banks, but how long those repairs will take remains unknown.
Drivers traveling between Hatteras Island and the mainland were forced to use an emergency ferry Wednesday, following the sudden closure of the Bonner Bridge Tuesday.
State officials say construction on a new Bonner Bridge has been delayed for years because of a legal battle with an environmental group.
