2 men charged in western Arkansas shooting death

RUDY, Ark. (AP) - Two men have been charged with capital murder in the shooting death of a 19-year-old in western Arkansas.

The Southwest Times Record reports 27-year-old Jonathan Bridgewater and 19-year-old Nicholas Barrows are accused of fatally shooting 19-year-old Jamison Lee Plum in June. The men are half-brothers from Rudy.

Barrows also faces a charge of criminal use of a prohibited weapon. Police say they found pipe bombs at his home during a search.

Authorities say Plum's body was found last month in a shallow grave on property owned by the suspects' grandmother. Both men lived on the property in separate homes.

Online court records didn't list an attorney for the men.
