Investigators said Steven Morrow and Jesse Wright, both 18, devised a plan to rob Mancuso and Drake. They all drove to the mobile home park where they agreed to go to the woods near the pond.

There, Morrow took a pistol and shot the two victims, according to police.

The suspect then fled the area in a vehicle Wright drove. Last week, they were both charged with two counts of murder, two counts of armed robbery and four counts of possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony.

Both suspects are being held in jail without bond.
