Two men have been charged with beating a Bucks County native to death near the man's West Virginia college over the weekend.

Kevin M. Figaniak, 21, of Perkasie, died early Sunday at a Pittsburgh hospital. He was found badly beaten near the Wheeling Jesuit University campus early Saturday.

Jarrett Chander, 24, of Winnfield, La., and Craig Peacock, 22, of Clewiston, Fla., have been charged with murder in connection with Figaniak's death, NBC10 reports. Wheeling police and other local authorities arrested the two men at a campsite about 12:15 a.m. this morning.

Figaniak was a graduate of Pennridge High School. He was a senior at Wheeling Jesuit, and played lacrosse and ice hockey at the school.
