Teen indicted in murder of Siler City man

Esau Abraham Brenes

A Chatham County grand jury has indicted 16-year-old Arnold Jaramillo Lopez in the murder of 25-year-old Esau Abraham Brenes.

Brenes was found dead in Siler City on Oct. 24 after he had been reported missing for weeks.

Authorities had also charged 21-year-old Francisco Rivas Galves-Huezo in the case, but he was found dead near Julian on Friday of multiple gunshot wounds.

Lopez is charged with first-degree murder and robbery in the Brenes case.

The Chatham County Sheriff's Office, the Siler City Police Department, and the State Bureau of Investigation are all working on the investigation.
