NORTH MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – Nicolas Mciver and Terrell Freeman were arrested in Charlotte four days after Amanda Fisher was shot and killed in North Myrtle Beach.

A spokesman with the DA's office in Mecklenburg County said the two men waved their right to an extradition trial, which means they will likely be sent back to Horry County and charged with murder.

The two men who authorities said were involved in the shooting death of Amanda Fisher at the K&W Cafeteria parking lot in North Myrtle Beach on July 9 are now in custody.

"At that time we had not a whole lot to go on. Just a white vehicle, possibly two males. But since that time, through investigation, we've identified the two suspects, we've located the young lady's vehicle, and now we're waiting to serve warrants on the two suspects that we've identified." said NMB Public Safety Capt. Michael Baldasarre.

Photos taken from Fisher’s cell phone of the two men were released to the public, asking for help identifying them as persons of interest in her murder after she was found dead in the restaurant parking lot.

Freeman was picked up for having violated parole on another matter, saying he traveled from North Carolina to South Carolina, which was a parole violation. Mciver was picked up for having burned Fisher’s car, and possessing a stolen motor vehicle.

According the Charlotte Observer, Fisher was formerly a key witness in the murder of Johnny Peany back in April.

Sources said Fisher moved away to Myrtle Beach after being summoned to testify against her boyfriend, but was later arrested and jailed to ensure that she showed up in court. However, according to those sources, after giving conflicting testimony, the trial ended in a hung jury, and was declared a mistrial.

While authorities said they are aware of Fisher's past, the reason for her murder is still too early to tell.

"We haven't made any connections to that at this time." said Baldasarre.

A DA spokesperson in Mecklenburg said the two suspects were given the right to fight extradition, which would involve longer court proceedings and a decision by a judge, but instead they opted to waive their rights and be sent back to Horry County to face charges.

Authorities said they do not know exactly when Mciver and Freeman will be extradited to Horry County, but hope to see justice served very soon. The investigation is still on-going.

North Myrtle Beach, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police and other law enforcement agencies cooperated together to trace, locate and apprehend the two men.
