Two suspects are in custody in the Monday stabbing death of a 55-year-old man in Benton City.

Noah Matlack and Noel Gonzalez were arrested Sunday night at a truck stop in Stanfield, Oregon on an unrelated drug charge.

Benton County Sheriffs Deputies say the connection to the Benton City death was made later.

The two men were formally charged today for allegedly killing Mike Edwards.

Each has been charged with one count of first degree murder. They remain behind bars at the Umatilla County Jail.

The 55-year-old victim was found Monday morning behind the Assembly of God Church about a mile from his home.
