NEW PHILADELPHIA, Ohio (AP) - Authorities say one of the men charged with murder in the abduction and slayings of an elderly couple in northeast Ohio has implicated a second suspect who remains at-large.

The Tuscarawas County sheriff’s department issued a statement on its Facebook page Saturday night announcing the arrest of 21-year-old Jeffery Stewart in the slayings of 88-year-old Doyle Chumney and his 79-year-old wife, Lillian. The Strasburg couple was reported missing Jan. 21 after they failed to meet their son. Their badly burned remains were found in their car on a rural road the next day.

Authorities are looking for 29-year-old Robert Clark. Police say Clark is likely armed and should be considered dangerous. He is described as 6 foot 3 and 350 pounds. Clark was last seen driving a green Dodge mini-van.
