HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – The two suspects charged with murder in the Zachary Malinowski case have been indicted by an Horry County Grand Jury, according to the court of clerk's office.

Javon Gibbs and Christopher Brown were indicted Thursday, Feb. 26 on the charges of murder and kidnapping in the Zachary Malinowski case.

A preliminary hearing was held last month for the two accused men.

Brown and Gibbs remained in jail and attended the hearing via teleconference before Judge Bradley Mayers.

The suspects may also have a bond hearing later this month.

Police say the two men kidnapped Zachary Malinowski, from his home in August 2013, when he was 19, then took him to the west side of Horry County and killed him. They have both been charged with kidnapping and murder.
