ORANGEBURG, S.C. -

Police say they have found the dead body of a teen from Orangeburg County who was missing for a week.

The Calhoun County Sheriff's Office says Bryant McKnight and Jerry McKnight have been arrested and charged with murder in a mistaken revenge killing.

The two brothers killed 17-year-old Kymmara Randolph because they thought she set them up to be robbed, deputies said.

But, Sheriff Thomas Summers said that Randolph had nothing to do with a robbery.

Summers says Randolph was killed shortly after she was last seen leaving an Orangeburg home with a man Feb. 13.

Authorities found her body Friday in a swamp after several days of searching.

Deputies say the men lured Randolph from her home by saying they were taking her to a party.

Jerry McKnight, age 45, and  Bryant McKnight, age 32, are being held in the Calhoun County Jail.

According to police  Randolph was last seen by her roommate on Thursday February 13.  She was last seen wearing a black coat and multi-colored tights. 

Randolph is believed to have left her Eastwood Circle home with Bryan McKnight at 8 p.m. February 13.

A third man, Jonathan Mcknight, is charged with accessory after the fact.
