Amory man indicted in connection with ex-NFL player's murder

This week, the Drug Enforcement Agency announced three men were charged in their murder.

Three people have been charged in the fatal shootings of a former National Football League player and another man whose bodies were found in a Detroit basement in 2016.

The three are charged with interstate travel with intent to kill, injure or harass; interstate travel in aid of unlawful activity; heroin and cocaine distribution and firearm offenses relating to the murders of Eddins and McFarlin.

Eddins and McFarlin were found with multiple gunshot wounds. They will reportedly face up to life in prison if convicted.

According to The Detroit News, Eddins and McFarlin were found shot in the head "execution-style" on December 20, 2016.

Robert Eddins as an IN college player.

They killed the other man in the process, the reports said.

"The murders of Eddin and McFarlin is just another example of how violence is intertwined with drug trafficking", stated Special Agent Plancon.

Inside the auto, investigators found more than one kilogram of heroin hidden near the rear quarter panel of the vehicle. It is unclear whether the weapon was linked to Eddins' killing.

A Detroit native, Eddins played football at Ball State University before a brief stint as a defensive end with the Bills after making the team as an undrafted rookie in 2011, the newspaper stated. He played in the four preseason games and one regular season game that season and returned for training camp in 2012 and played in the preseason before he was released.
