Two arrests in Shelby County teenager's murder

Justin Hamilton

Talladega County investigators have announced the arrests of two teenagers in the murder of 19-year-old Cameron McGlothan.

Investigators have charged 19-year-old Justin Hamilton from Chelsea and 18-year-old Demarcus Samuels from Sylacauga with capital murder and robbery 1st degree. They are being held in the Talladega County jail with no bond.

Hamilton, a friend of McGlothan's,{}has been in{}the Shelby County Detention Center{}since March. He wasn't charged with the crime until Thursday.

"We can't control timelines," said{}Talladega County Sheriff Jimmy Kilgore. "We were waiting results on some things that we needed to{}get to obtain{}warrants."

McGlothan's body was discovered in early March 12 in Sycamore. The 19-year-old's family reported him missing after he left his Shelby County home with a friend March 5.

"It certainly has to be a horrendous deal for the family," added Sheriff Kilgore.
