(CBS/AP/WCBS) NEW YORK - Two men have been charged with murder in the shooting death of DJ Megatron, the "106 & Park" personality who was killed last month in Staten Island, N.Y.

William Williams, 21, and Richard Cromwell, 20, were arrested Wednesday on charges of murder, robbery and criminal possession of a weapon. The two men appeared in court Thursday.

Police say that the father of three, whose given name was Corey McGriff, was shot once in the chest while walking to a store near his Staten Island home.

Sources told NBC affiliate WNBC that cops followed a "Crime Stoppers" phone tip to Williams, who confessed his guilt in a statement.
