Union Parish Sheriff Bob Buckley in Louisiana says that two arrests have been made in connection to the homicide of Precious Amber Story, who had been missing from her Bernice, La., home since Friday.
The 18-year-old woman's body was found just east of Junction City, Ark., on Sunday. Her body was sent to Little Rock for an autopsy. Dr. Frank Perette made a positive identification by dental records.
Arrested were James Lewis Jr. of Bernice, La., and Roger Lee Phillips Jr. of Strong, Ark.
Lewis was arrested Sunday night on charges of second degree murder and a bond of $350,000 was set. He is being held at the Union Parish Detention Center in Farmerville, La.
Phillips is charged with obstruction of justice with a bond of $50,000. He is also being held at the Union Parish Detention Center in Farmerville.
Buckley says the investigation is continuing and there may be more arrests.
