A 19-year-old Lincoln man has been accused of helping beat to death two people in Lincoln this past summer.
19 year old Richard McLaughlin III faces two weapons and two accessory charges. He's being held in Lancaster County Jail.
Lincoln Police Chief Jim Peschong said Wednesday that McLaughlin is suspected of having ties to a gang called True Blue Soldiers that targeted the two victims. The two were identified as 20-year-old Nathan ``Shane'' Walton and 27-year-old David Mueller.
20 year old Nathan Walton was found beaten near his home on June 29. He died July 2. 27 year old David Mueller was found that same morning on a street north of downtown Lincoln. He died on July 7.
No other arrests have been reported in the case.
