The FBI has arrested two 20-year-old men in connection with a homicide near Crownpoint earlier this month.

FBI officials say Calvin E. Augustine and Byron C. Pahe both were taken into custody last week. Authorities say the men are charged with suspicion of second-degree murder in the Sept. 4 shooting death of 43-year-old Vinton B. Wally.

Wally’s 24-year-old son was wounded in the incident.

The FBI says Augustine and Pahe are scheduled to appear before a federal magistrate on Thursday morning for their initial court hearing.

Navajo Police arrested the two men on separate tribal charges on Sept. 4. A third suspect in the case – also a 20-year-old man – was arrested last week.
