BLUEFIELD (WVVA) - Two men have been arrested and police have a warrant for a third in connection with the murder of a 23-year-old in Bluefield earlier this year.

Bluefield police arrested David Reasby Tuesday at a residence in Bluefield. He is charged with first-degree murder in the August 2012 death of Derek Tabor of Montcalm.

Mitchell Watts has also been charged with first-degree murder. Watts is currently incarcerated in Union County, N.C., and will be extradited back to Mercer County.

Police are not releasing information on the third suspect at this time but do have an idea as to where they may be.

Tabor was shot and killed at a residence on Fourth Street in Bluefield. A friend brought Tabor's body directly to the Bluefield police station after the shooting.

Police say that friend has no connection to the murder.
