Henry County officials have arrested two people in connection with a Christmas morning murder.
(++++++++)

[TAKE BOWMAN PIC FS - E653]
Forty-three-year-old William Bayron Bowman is charged with second degree murder in the death of 41-year-old Charles Custer. [WIPE TO STUMP PIC FS - E652]
Twenty-seven-year-old Jennifer Darlene Stump is charged with being an accessory to murder.
(--------------------)
[ANCHOR=SHANNON]
[GRAPHIC=HOLD]


According the the Henry County Sheriff's Department, Custer's body was found in front of a small garage just before 7:30 Saturday morning.
Officials say Custer and Bowman got into an argument about a set of wheels that Custer had apparently purchased, but not paid for.
During the dispute, Bowman cut Custer's leg and hit an artery.
While the fight was underway, another car with two of Bowman's friends pulled up to the garage.
After Custer was stabbed in the leg, Bowman and his three friends put Custer back into his truck and drove him to Bowman's home, where they tried unsuccessfully to administer first aid.
Custer died from the leg injury.
Authorities say after another man arrived at Bowman's house, the group removed Custer's clothes and burned them outside. They then partially re-clothed Custer, and Bowman took him back to his truck at the garage.
Bowman reportedly used Custer's truck to spin the gravel in the parking lot to make it appear as though several vehicles had been at the scene.
Two woman went to a nearby gas station and made a false statement to police about a fight among a large group of people at the garage.
Bowman is being held at the Henry County Jail without bond. Stump was jailed and released on one thousand dollars bond.
Officials say all other parties cooperated and that they do not expect any more charges to be filed.

Nearly 80 percent of Americans will experience back pain sometime in their lives.
For many, a bad disk is to blame.
While taking out the disc can get rid of the pain, it can also lead to limited movement and more complications.

To Boise Idaho we go and the Cavaliers were looking for their third straight Bowl victory and the first 9 and 3 season since posting that mark back in 1998.
Fresno State was no push over though. The Broncos are making their sixth consecutive post season appearance.
The Wahoos came out of the gates hard and would score on their first three possessions. Alvin Pearman gets things started with this 13 yard touchdown run and UVa goes up 7 zip.
The Bulldogs bite back. Quarterback Paul Pinegar finds Adam Jennings on a 12 yard TD connection, still in the first quarter and we are tied at a touchdown a piece.
The cavs would score two unanswered TD's next. Hagans does it with his arm here, connecting with Michael McGrew, a seven yard touchdown pass.
Hagans then does it with his quick feet, taking the rock in from 8 yards away, 21-7 UVa. The Bulldogs would outscore Virginia 17-3 into the fourth quarter and tied it at 24-all. But with about 6 and a half minutes left in the game, Wally Lundy scores from 20 yards out to put Uva back on top 31-24 and that is the score at this moment.
