DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - A third man has been charged with robberies in connection with the slayings of two men whose bodies were found earlier this month in Des Moines.

Police said Sunday that 18-year-old Luis Magallon is the third person charged with two counts of robbery in the case. Twenty-year-old Shamair Gainey and 18-year-old Roberto Baez-Alvarez were arrested last week on suspicion of robbery.

In addition to those three, police have charged 20-year-old Albert Jeffrey Garcia with two counts of first-degree murder in the deaths of 20-year-old Demetrius Thomas and 19-year-old Mohammad Nabeel Mirzai.

Officers who responded to a report Sept. 11 about someone who might be injured found the body of one of the men. Police say the second body was found less than a block away.
