Two Camden men have been arrested for killing a Cherry Hill man in the city last month, authorities said today.

Michael Winters, 37, and Andrew Alford, 39, attacked and beat Gregory Holder, 44, around 11:45 p.m. on Nov. 2 near Broadway and Berkley Street, the Camden County Prosecutor's Office and city police said.

They will be arraigned on murder charges today in Superior Court in Camden.

Holder was a landscape architect who lived with his parents and struggled with addiction, his family said. He kicked a cocaine habit years ago, but was addicted to alcohol and pain medications, his father, Roy Holder, said. He was a graduate of Delaware Valley College.

Holder's death on Nov. 9 tied Camden's previous record of 58 homicides set in 1995. On Monday, a man shot in October died of his injuries, bringing the homicide toll to 62.
