Two men accused of killing a man are set for trial in Augusta County.

Twenty-two-year-old Carlton Currier and 33-year-old Steven Lanier are both charged with first-degree murder.

Currier and Lanier were arrested in October 2015, when, investigators say, they attacked and killed 53-year old Johnnie Johnson at the Skyline Motel on Jefferson Highway.

Currier and Lanier are scheduled for a bench trial in August.
