October 29--  Two Lyons men accused of murdering 26-year-old Brandon Colson of Lyons were in Toombs County Superior Court Monday for their first appearance hearing before Superior Court Judge Kathy Palmer.

Colson had been reporting missing October 4.  His body was found in a makeshift grave last week in a wooded area near Bryant's  residence at 148 Ponderosa Road in Toombs County.

Toombs County Sheriff Junior Kight reports the two accused were acquaintances of Colson and he thinks the crime was about "money."

Chief Assistant District Attorney Tripp Fitzner expects the case will be presented to a Toombs County Superior Court in late November and more charges may be filed depending on the final report from the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.
