Brent Carey, 28, and Claude Simpson, 33, both of Calhoun, Ga., have been charged with murder and armed robbery, Sheriff Mitch Ralston said in a news release.

Both men were arrested after 42-year-old Jason Hammond was found dead in his home off Union Grove Church Road.

Authorities say Hammond's death was drug related and not a random robbery.

Police have now found a third suspect, Deunta Curtis, 22. He surrendered to authorities after the Chattanooga police and U.S. Marshalls barricaded a house Monday night.
