Three people face murder charges in connection to the discovery of two bodies inside a burning building in western Iowa.
Authorities announced Thursday at a press conference that they have arrested 19-year-old Jayden Chapman, 36-year-old Erika Haberberger-Dains and 26-year-old Michael Schenk. All three are charged with two counts of first-degree murder and one count of first-degree arson.
Authorities say the bodies of 80-year-old Marvin Huesling and 81-year-old Alice Huisenga, both of Carroll County, were found inside the burning structure Monday. Huesling died of multiple gunshot wounds. Huisenga was killed by "homicidal violence," though additional information was not released.
The Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation says the suspects were likely on the property to steal scrap metal. They are at the Crawford County Jail. Court records do not list attorneys.
