Two Canton men are in custody in connection with the severe beating of a man in his home last month.

According to Canton Police and the Lewis County Sheriff’s Office, 24-year-old Ethan Fahser and 39-year-old Darren Marshall are charged with first degree assault and burglary.

Fahser is alleged to have been angry with a Canton man for having sexual relations with his girlfriend. Fahser and Marshall are alleged to have gone to the man’s house, hit the man with a wooden pole, then beat the man with their fists and feet.

Fahser and Marshall have entered not guilty pleas to the charges. They are expected back in court Monday.
