Albany --  Two  murder suspects are booked into the Doughertry County jail. Twenty-year-old Kentrell Barney and 18-year-old Antonio Seay are charged with the January murder of 52-year-old John Lewis Barbre.  

Students walking to school January 15, found Barbre in front of the Tallulah Massey library.    He had a large cut on the back of his head. He died two days later at Phoebe Putney Hospital.   

Barbre had given Albany police information in the Jack Camp murder, but investigators say the attack on Barbre was part of a robbery, and was unrelated to the Camp killing.
