3 Colorado men charged in dragging death in Texas

CORSICANA, Texas (AP) - Three men have been charged with murder in the dragging death of a 25-year-old Hill County man, including the victim's brother.

Christopher Beckham of Milford was found in a plowed field early Thursday. Authorities say he had been dragged by a strap attached from around his neck to a pickup truck bumper.

Twenty-five-year-old Marcus Alan Beckham of Milford, 32-year-old Raymond Scott Harrington, of Trinidad, Colo., and 23-year-old Raymond George Harrington of Granbury were arraigned Friday and being held on bonds of $1 million each.

Hill County Chief Deputy Steve Girsh said it appeared a night of drinking and playing pool led to a dispute "that simply got out of hand."

A jail spokesman said there was no record indicating the men have attorneys.
