Arrests have been made in the death of a 23-year-old Stone Mountain man found Monday on the campus of Georgia Perimeter College in Clarkston.

Christopher Shepard, 28, and Constance Mason, 44, were arrested Thursday morning on charges related to the murder of Alpha Oumar Diallo.

Shepherd has been charged with one count of murder and Mason was charged with one count of false statements and writings.

Bond was denied for Christopher Shepard on Friday.

Diallo's body was found lying in a grassy area on campus around 7 a.m. by a custodial employee at the college.

According to autopsy documents, Diallo died as a result of strangulation and blunt force injuries to the head.

Police said he is a citizen of French Guinea in West Africa. He has been a resident in the United States since 2008.
