PASTOR MURDERED FOR HIS GUNS - The Wayne County Sheriff has filed murder warrants for two AWOL soldiers who had been in Iraq and had been staying at a Wayne County residence with a fellow soldier.

The accused men fled from a Wayne County house Friday.

Police are looking for Stephen Wilson of Cincinnati and Daniel Smith of Newport News, Virginia, accused of murdering Huntington pastor Mark McCalla.

McCalla's body was found shot to death at a shooting range at the Beech Fork Lake Wildlife Management Area last week.

Police say both men are AWOL from US Army at Fort Drum, NY. They should be considered armed and dangerous.

Investigators confiscated a number of guns and a car with New York license plates.

The Wayne County sheriff says he believes the motive of the murder was robbery because some of the guns confiscated appeared to have belonged to McCalla.

A tipster said she saw a car with New York plates near the crime scene the morning Rev. McCalla was killed.

The search for both men continues. The suspects could be on foot.
