CHAPEL HILL — A professor at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill has died after an attack near campus, and two men face multiple charges in the incident.

According to police, 59-year-old Feng Liu suffered serious head wounds Wednesday and was taken to UNC Hospitals. He died Thursday.

Chapel Hill police spokesman Lt. Josh Mecimore (MEE’-sih-mor) said information from a passerby helped lead police to the suspects. Mecimore was not available to comment on a possible motive for the attack.

Authorities say 23-year-old Derick Davis II of Durham and 27-year-old Troy Arrington Jr. of Chapel Hill face first-degree murder and other charges. The two men appeared in court Thursday, and it’s not known if either man has an attorney.

Liu was a research professor in UNC’s Eshelman School of Pharmacy.

A SHAMELFUL LOST

The list continues to grow on both sides. The innocent and the criminal. The criminals are winning hands down and the lost of the innocent is a DOWN RIGHT SHAME!!!! not to even mention a traumatic life changing invasion for the families and the world. When the hired and elected officials can't protect and keep it's citizens safe then it's time the citizens keep themselves and their families safe. The decision has been made for the innocent by the criminals, the innocent must protect it's self by changing the integrity of the criminals. Just as the Twin Towers were rebuilt the criminals and their environments has to be transformed and not allowed to fester and grow praying and hoping things will get better when the real issues are being sugar-coated and "played down". It's said that, "criminals are smart and that they have "organized" their gangs" (I beg to differ) It's past time that the innocent organize and change the approach to addressing crime and the criminal. Help us protect the innocent by changing the criminal and it's environment. Johnny Cunningham THE BUILDING TRADE CENTER 252-266-3858
