Maryland Authorities say two teens have been arrested in the gang-related killing of a man found dead a wooded area last month.

According to WJIA, Prince George’s County Police charged 16-year-old brothers Lenin and Bryan Mancias-Callejas, both age 16, as adults with a gang-related slaying in connection with the fatal stabbing of 19-year-old Herson Mejia-Alvarez.

The brothers face a litany of counts including first-degree murder and second-degree murder charges.

Officials said Wednesday that police are still searching for 18-year-old Francisco Sosa, who faces the same charges.

Authorities working an unrelated case found the body of Alavarez on May 23rd.

The coroner’s report ruled the victim died from blunt force trauma in a homicide.

Police say the two brother and the third suspect are members of a gang, but didn’t immediately specify which one.

The Mancias-Callejases are in custody. It’s unclear if they have lawyers.
