GREELEY, Colo. (AP) - Prosecutors have charged three people in connection with the deaths of two Oklahoma men who were found in a burning pickup truck in northern Colorado.

The Greeley Tribune reports (https://goo.gl/0MUIaS ) 34-year-old Samuel Pinney and 27-year-old Samantha Simmons are facing several charges, including first-degree murder, arson and robbery. Meanwhile, 26-year-old Nathaniel Youngman was charged with conspiracy to commit aggravated robbery.

The bodies of Zach Moore, of Prague, Oklahoma, and Joshua Foster, of Muskogee, Oklahoma, were found Oct. 17 at the Pawnee National Grassland.

Investigators say Pinney had accompanied Foster on at least one smuggling run to bring marijuana to Oklahoma from Colorado. However, Foster sought to return to Colorado, using Pinney’s marijuana connections but cutting Pinney out of the deal.

Booking documents don’t list an attorney for Pinney, Simmons or Youngman.
