WELCH, W.Va. (AP) - West Virginia State Police have charged two men in connection with the slayings of two people whose bodies were found in a burned vehicle.

State police said Tuesday that Donald Bailey of Crumpler is charged with first-degree murder, third-degree arson and conspiracy. Troy Justice of Panther is charged with accessory to murder, third-degree arson and conspiracy.

State police identified the victims as 21-year-old Brandon Church of Ieager and 46-year-old Clinton Mullins of Garland. A trooper found their bodies early Sunday while responding to a report of a wreck and vehicle fire in the Long Pole area of McDowell County.

Investigators believe Church and Mullins were killed before the vehicle fire.
