Upon arrival, they found John Marlow had received significant injuries to his head and was transported to a local trauma center. A female victim, Ranotta Moser, had also received injuries; however they were less severe than those afflicted upon Marlow.

Waylon Moser, 29 and Bobby Moser, 28, were arrested at the scene and transported to the Sharp County Jail.

“Investigators went to the scene and have been working the case,” Sharp County Sheriff Mark Counts said. “Since then, Marlow has been released from the hospital. The two suspects in the case received a $25,000 bond each and have since bonded out.”

Villager Journal will have more details as they are released.
