CARTERSVILLE, Ga. (AP) - Two women face murder and armed robbery charges in connection with the death of a 74-year-old Georgia man.

News outlets report 19-year-old Rachel Savannah Ridley was arrested Sept. 8 and 20-year-old Keisha Rena Cone was arrested Wednesday. The two women face charges in the death of James Edwards Stephens, who was found dead on Aug. 27 by police conducting a welfare check.

Bartow County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Jonathan Rogers says authorities determined Stephens had been dead for some time. A medical examiner’s report concluded he had died from blunt force injuries.
