Three people face murder charges in connection to the discovery of two bodies inside a burning building in western Iowa.


Authorities announced Thursday that they have arrested 19 year old Jayden Chapman, 36 year old Erika Haberberger-Dains and 26-year-old Michael Schenk. All three are charged with two counts of first-degree murder and one count of first-degree arson.


Investigators say the bodies of 80 year old Marvin Huesling and 81 year old Alice Huisenga, both of Carroll County, were found inside the burning building Monday. Huesling died of multiple gunshot wounds. Huisenga's specific cause of death has not been released.


The Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation says the suspects were likely on the property to steal scrap metal. They are at the Crawford County Jail.
