Brothers face murder charges after body found at MARTA station

Two brothers have been charged with murder in connection with a body dumped at a MARTA station, police said Tuesday.

Orlando Gibson and Xavier Gibson were arrested Nov. 10 after the body of Christopher Dean was found in the trunk of a car parked at the H.E. Holmes station, MARTA police spokeswoman Alisa Jackson said.

Police said Dean was likely killed elsewhere and left in his abandoned car in a free parking lot.

The Gibson brothers face charges of murder and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. They have been in the Fulton County jail held without bond since their arrest.

They are scheduled for a preliminary hearing at 9:30 a.m. Wednesday.
