Four Madison County men have been charged in connection with the beating earlier this month of an Alton man.

Montinez K. Knight, 22, Todd C. Lockhart, 30, Mikkel A. Lumpkins, 22, and Malik A. Lumpkins, 21, have been charged with aggravated battery and mob action.

According to the Madison County State's Attorney's Office, the men are blamed with stabbing Montigo Embrey, 41, as well as beating him with a chair, a golf club, a motorcycle helmet and a bottle.

Prosecutors also charged Jason Embry, 39, with aggravated battery of a firearm. He is accused of shooting Michael Lumpkins Sr. on the same day Embrey was beaten. Police believe the two incidents are related.
