HAZARD, Ky. (AP) - Two eastern Kentucky men have been charged in the deaths more than two years ago of a woman and her daughter, whose bodies were found after their home burned.

Kentucky State Police said 32-year-old Matthew S. Minks of Happy, Kentucky, was charged with two counts of murder and 30-year-old Ronnie M. Everage of Hazard was charged with two counts of complicity to commit murder.

Police said an armed robbery investigation Monday in Hazard produced information that led to the arrests.

They are charged in the deaths of 64-year-old Sandra K. Melton and 35-year-old Suzy Melton, both of the Scuddy community of Perry County. Police said the Meltons’ bodies were found Jan. 13, 2013, in the debris of a fire at their residence, and both deaths were ruled homicides.
