BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) -

More people are under arrest in connection to the murder of a Shelton State Community College student. Shydelle Walker and Tamarra Wilder are each charged with murder and are in jail under a $75,000 bond.

24-year-old Timothy "Junior" Thornton and 18-year-old Kiunte "Felon" Furr are both facing capital murder charges in the shooting of 17-year-old Matthew Callahan on April 9 in the parking lot of Tuscaloosa's River Road condominiums.

Investigators say Walker and Wilder's charges are different from the capital murder charges of Thornton and Furr. They say the women's charges stem from their role in the crime.
