Christopher Shepard, 28, has been charged with murder and 44-year-old Constance Mason was charged with giving false statements and writings. The two live at a home on North Indian Creek Drive, not far from where Diallo's body was discovered near the college's library.

Diallo was not a student at the college. He was a citizen of French Guinea in West Africa and had been a resident of the United States since 2008.

The GBI said an autopsy revealed Diallo's death was caused by strangulation and blunt force injuries to the head.

Shepard and Mason are in the DeKalb County Jail awaiting a bond hearing.
