Two more people have been arrested in the death of a 69-year-old man whose body was found at a cemetery in North Carolina, police said.

News outlets report Raleigh police said Johnathan Dan Villanueva-Galer, 19, of Raleigh, was arrested on Tuesday and charged with the murder of James Lucy Taylor. Police also said juvenile petitions have been obtained for a 16-year-old who has been taken into custody in the death of Taylor.

The arrest of Maria Elizabeth Pena-Echeverria, 18, who was charged with murder in the case, was announced by the Raleigh Police Department on Saturday night.

Police were called to Mount Olivet Cemetery in Raleigh Friday night, where they found a seriously injured man who was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital.
