PITTSFIELD, Pa. (AP) - A man’s body has been found buried in the crawl space of a Pennsylvania garage, and two people are in custody.

An autopsy is set for Friday. Investigators believe it will positively identify the victim as 18-year-old Marcus Mattson, who was last seen alive Feb. 5.

Police have charged 25-year-old James McDaniel, of Russell, with fatally shooting Mattson. Twenty-two-year-old Gary Williams, of Northern Cambria, has been charged with helping McDaniel dispose of the body. Both remain jailed without bond Friday. Neither has attorneys listed in court papers.

Police say McDaniel told them he shot Mattson when Mattson tried to rob him during a drug deal at the garage in Brokenstraw Township. But Warren County authorities say it was a premeditated killing.
