Two and a half years after a man was killed in his Loris home, Horry County police charged four men with murder.

Horry County police found Kelly Joe Elliot dead in his home from a gunshot wound on September 15, 2008.

Investigators found no leads and the case turned cold.

But in March 2011, detectives got a tip. It led them to four men in North Carolina, Virginia and West Virginia. All four were arrested over the weekend. They'll be formally charged when they're brought back to Horry County.
