Michigan CBS News Affiliate WWMT reports that Shaquille Jones of North Charleston and Joe Jordan of Sumter were in Ann Arbor on Friday where a judge ordered that the two men will stand trail for the murder of Paul DeWolf.

Jordan faces charges of murder, two counts of first-degree home invasion, and conspiracy to commit first-degree home invasion. Jones was charged with homicide, two counts of first degree home invasion, and conspiracy to commit home invasion.

Dewolf, 25, was found shot in the neck in July. Investigators say a co-worker found Dewolf dead in his fraternity house in the 200 block of N. Ingalls Street.

According to investigators, a tip led to Jones' arrest. The tipster said someone wanted by Ann Arbor, Michigan police for murder was in the North Charleston area.

North Charleston police then arrested Jones at his apartment on Elms Plantation Boulevard. Officers say they also found two stolen guns in a duffle bag in the apartment.

Both guns were loaded, according to a police report.
