MANISTIQUE, Mich. (AP) - Two men charged in the deaths of three people whose bodies were found in a burned-out car in the Upper Peninsula have been granted psychiatric evaluations to determine if they are fit to stand trial.

The Daily News in Iron Mountain reports (https://bit.ly/1HWdPla ) Wednesday that the evaluations will be allowed for 47-year-old Gary Cordell and 46-year-old Kenneth Brunke based on their histories of depression and the possibility of other mental illnesses.

A hearing on the evaluations was held Aug. 3 in Schoolcraft County District Court.

They are charged with murder, conspiracy to commit murder and unlawful imprisonment.

The bodies of 31-year-old Carrie Nelson, 25-year-old Heather Aldrich and 42-year-old Jody Hutchinson were found April 17 in a car on a gravel road in Doyle Township, 70 miles southeast of Marquette.
