FORT MORGAN, Colo. – Two 17-year-old boys have been arrested on first-degree murder charges in the deaths of two people who had been reported missing and were found dead in April.

The Fort Morgan Sheriff’s Office says the two teenagers were arrested around 9 p.m. Wednesday in the 200 block of S. West Street.

Their identities are not being released because they are juveniles, the sheriff’s office said. Both are being held without bond pending their first advisement in Morgan County District Court Friday.

The two face charges in the alleged killings of Santos Macias and Destiny McMinn. The two were reported missing earlier this year.

Macis’ body was found on April 17 in the 19000 block of Highway 34, and McMinn’s body was found a week later in the 9000 block of Road Q in Fort Morgan.

The sheriff’s office says it is working with several local agencies, and that the teams have interviewed “dozens” of people in regards to the case and served several search warrants.

The sheriff’s office says the investigation is active and ongoing.
