MCPHERSON, Kan. (AP) — Two suspects in the death of a Tabor College football player will face trial.
After a preliminary hearing ended Thursday, Alton Franklin and DeQuinte Flournoy were bound over for trial on charges of being accessories to second-degree murder.
Twenty-six-year-old Brandon Brown was found unconscious Sept. 16 at a McPherson Party. The redshirt defensive lineman from Tabor College died about a week later.
The suspects both are former McPherson College football players from Dallas. Broadcaster KWCH (http://bit.ly/WEaT9c) reports that they remain jailed on $250,000 bond.
During the hearing a forensic pathologist testified that Brown died from blunt force trauma to the head, and ethanol poisoning was a secondary cause of death.
