The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation added two men wanted for a Franklin County murder to the state's top 10 Most Wanted list on Wednesday.

David Jenkins, 46, and Coty Holmes, 25, are wanted by the Franklin County Sheriff's Office and the TBI for their involvement in the beating death of Corey Matthews.

Matthews, 26, was discovered dead in a field in Cowan, Tennessee on March 24. Authorities said he suffered blunt trauma to his head and face.

Investigators have since said they believe Matthews was targeted because of his affiliation with the Aryan Brotherhood and Aryan Nation.

Police previously arrested Todd Dalton, 39, and John Lanier, 26, for their involvement in Matthews' death.

Both were charged with first degree murder and felony murder.

Jenkins is described as a white male with brown hair and brown eyes. He is five feet, 10 inches tall and weighs around 185 pounds. He has numerous tattoos on his arms, left shoulder, chest, back and thighs, as well as a number of scars.

Authorities said he has a criminal history that dates back to 1985 and includes assault, drug trafficking, resisting arrest, possession of stolen property, robbery, escape, writing bad checks, DUI and traffic violations.

Holmes is described as a white male with brown hair and blue eyes. He is six feet, one inch tall and weighs approximately 180 pounds. He has tattoos on both arms and a scar on his left forearm.

Holmes criminal history includes possession of marijuana.

Both Jenkins and Holmes are considered armed and dangerous and should be approached with extreme caution.

Anyone with information on their whereabouts is urged to call the TBI at 1-800-TBI-FIND.

A $1,000 reward for information leading to their arrests is being offered.
