WHEELING, WV — An argument that turned physical and ended with the death of a Wheeling Jesuit University student this weekend appears to have begun as a random encounter, Wheeling police said this afternoon.

Two men were arrested this morning in Ohio County outside Triadelphia, W.Va., and charged in the killing of Kevin M. Figaniak, 21, of Perkasie, Pa., which is between Allentown and Philadelphia.

Craig Tyler Peacock, 22, of Clewiston, Fla., and Jarrett Mathis Chandler, 24, of Winnfield, La., were arraigned this morning and are being held at the Northern Regional Jail in Moundsville, W.Va., on $1 million cash bond, Wheeling police said.

Each man told police he and his friends followed two unknown men down Edgington Lane, through the intersection and onto Locust Avenue, according to a Wheeling police criminal complaint.
