Two arrested in Deputy Dennis Compton's death

Update September 9: Many are reporting that bond has been denied for the two suspects.

Update September 9: The Post and Courier has followed up and has a story that rounds up the history of the search, offers a quote from Compton's wife, and has a video of the briefing. An excerpt:
Tabatha Compton and Anthony Buchanan, Dennis Compton's cousin, said news of the arrests has brought a sense of peace.

"I don't know if happy was the word. I cried a lot," she said. "I don't know if it was sad tears or joyful tears. All I knew is I felt my husband's presence and that he could rest."

Original post: Two men have been arrested in connection with the August slaying of Colleton County Deputy Dennis Compton.

Travis Javon Harris, 19, and Jacoby Jermaine Fields, 18, were arrested and are both charged with murder and first degree burglary.

A couple of versions out there of the story, but I suggest The Post and Courier's.
