NORMAN, Oklahoma -

Two more men were arrested in connection with the Justin Barnard murder investigation as Barnard's family prepared to lay him to rest. A U.S. Marshalls task force took the two men into custody Wednesday afternoon at a home in rural Oklahoma County.

The new arrests bring the total number of arrests in the case to six. Police say there will be more.

"I know we're supposed to forgive people but the act that was done and the cowardly way it was done, I don't think I'll ever forgive them," said James Moore, Barnard's first cousin.

Justin Barnard was shot in the face and killed after a group of men busted into his grandmother's home last week. Barnard's grandmother was also beaten by the men and robbed. She told News 9 that one of the suspects put a gun to her hear twice but he did not pull the trigger.

Police had four men in custody the day after the killing.

"It's comforting to know that the people that went in and assaulted our grandmother and killed our cousin, brother and son, are behind bars right now," said Moore.

James Moore and his family believe there are others out there connected to Barnard's murder and police agree.

"We have some people identified and potentially we have charges on those folks also and it's safe to assume that we're trying to find them in the same manner that we found the two yesterday and our hope is that we can get them in custody," said Captain Tom Easley with the Norman Police Department.

Barnard's family does not want anyone getting away. They want more arrest to be made and ultimately want to see more convictions.

"There's no words," said Moore. "They murdered a family member. I mean I don't like the people. I'm not going to wish death on anyone, but I hope that justice is done for my cousin."

All of these suspects are facing first degree murder charges.

Barnard's family is preparing to lay him to rest. They have set up a fund for donations at Chase bank. The name on the account is Justin Barnard. Account number 423009153. Routing number 103000648. For donations use only checks, money orders, call and pay by debit. No cash donations.
