Two men linked to a fatal stabbing last month near Hayward were charged Monday with first-degree homicide in Sawyer County Circuit Court.

Caleb Michael Miller, 18, and Marvin Alex Corbine Jr., 20, are accused of being involved with the fatal stabbing of John B. "J.B."

McDaniel, 23, on April 22. His brother, Derrick McDaniel, was critically injured with multiple stab wounds.

The two were arrested in April and held on preliminary charges of being party to the crime of homicide and party to the crime of attempted homicide.

Corbine and Miller each were charged Monday with two counts of first-degree homicide and one count of battery -- all felonies -- and one count of misdemeanor trespassing. Corbine also was charged with one count of bail-jumping. Both men are scheduled to make initial appearances Monday in Sawyer County Circuit Court.

The Sawyer County District Attorney's Office declined to comment on the case.

According to earlier reports from the Sawyer County Sheriff's Office, investigators identified seven people -- including Miller and Corbine -- who went to a Bacon Square home in the Town of Hayward on the Lac Courte Oreilles Reservation the night of the stabbing.

The first of three 911 calls about the situation came in at 4:30 a.m. April 22. The first caller reported that someone had been stabbed at the Bacon Square residence where John McDaniel lived. A second call came in almost immediately after, according to the Sheriff's Office, reporting a young male with a head injury at a residence seven miles away from Bacon Square. Then, a few minutes later, a woman called to report that her son had been stabbed and was at a house on Drytown Avenue in the Town of Hayward.

Sheriff's deputies and county ambulances responded to all three locations along with Lac Courte Oreilles police officers and found victims with stab wounds and blunt-force injuries. Corbine was among those injured during the incident. He was treated and released from the Hayward Area Memorial Hospital.
