CAMPBELLSBURG, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky State Police say remains found in a soybean field have been positively identified as a woman missing since last week.

Police said in a statement Tuesday that John Downey and Bobby Long, both of New Castle, are facing charges including murder. Another man, Joshua Sparkman of Campbellsburg, is charged with assault.

Police at the Campbellsburg post were notified Friday that 34-year-old Angela Hall of La Grange was missing. Three days later, detectives received information that led them to begin interviewing suspects and witnesses in Hall’s alleged slaying.

Police said they found a body in a location described by the suspects, who were arrested early Tuesday.

State police spokesman Josh Lawson told media that the corpse was found in a soybean field in Shelby County.

It wasn’t immediately clear whether the men charged have attorneys.
