Two Detroit men have been charged in connection with the June murder of a gay man from Detroit.

Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy was assisted by the Fair Michigan Justice Project in lodging first-degree murder charges against 28-year-old Anthony Brock and 30-year-old Darnell Wilson in connection with the killing of Diano Johnson.

Both suspects also face multiple other charges including armed robbery and carjacking.

Authorities claim that Brock on June 19 arranged to meet Johnson after connecting on Facebook. Brock then locked Johnson in the trunk of the victim's car, picked up Wilson, and the two drove to the city's east side where they shot Johnson multiple times.

Brock also faces a charge of arson for allegedly setting Johnson's car on fire.

The suspects are scheduled to be arraigned Monday.
