Father, son facing charges in 2007 Orange County murder

Authorities in Orange County have arrested a father and son in connection with a 2007 murder.

On Tuesday, investigators served warrants on first-degree murder to 67-year-old Jerry Wayne Sawyers and 29-year-old Christopher Ray Sawyers in connection with the September 2007 death of Charles Sidney Lloyd.

Authorities said the case had stalled until last fall when new information surfaced, leading investigators to undiscovered evidence, which eventually led to the two suspects.

Additional information surrounding the case has not been released at this time.

Meanwhile, the investigation remains ongoing.

Anyone with information surrounding the case is encouraged to contact the Orange County Sheriff's Office at (919) 644-3050 or make an anonymous tip by visiting www.ocsonc.com and selecting the CONTACT link.
