— Two people have been charged with killing a man wanted in the death of a Siler City man last fall, authorities said.

Ingrid Morales Rodriguez, 24, of 1300 S. Port St. in Siler City, and Miguel Angel Munoz, 18, of 1210 Oxford St. in Siler City, were charged last week with murder in the death of 21-year-old Francisco Rivas Galves-Huezo. Both also face charges of concealing an unnatural death in the case.

Munoz was being held without bond in the Randolph County jail, and Rodriguez was being held without bond in the Chatham County jail.

Galves-Huezo's body was found near U.S. Highway 421 in rural Randolph County on Oct. 30. He had been shot several times.

He had been reported missing on Oct. 24, the same day Esau Abraham Brenes' remains were found near the edge of the wood line on Siler City Snow Camp Road, just outside Siler City limits, authorities said.

Authorities had sought Galves-Huezo on charges of first-degree murder and robbery with a dangerous weapon in Brenes' death.
