Two men have been charged with murder in connection to a double homicide investigation that began when two bodies were found inside a burning truck in York County late Thursday night.
Donald Creswell and Steven Parker were arrested Friday afternoon and charged with murder, officials said at a press conference.
The two people in the truck, identified only as adult males, were found near Bonner-Horton Road and Hopewell Road. Officials say a passerby spotted a fire in the area around 11:30 p.m.
When officials arrived at the scene, they found the truck, still on fire with the two bodies inside.
