It was just Sunday when New Castle Police filed those charges.
Police say the two are involved in the missing person case of Amari Wise.
Police say Wise was first reported missing on June 5th.
KDKA was at the scene last week when investigators executed multiple search warrants at a home on Adams Street.
The main focus of the search was on the garage.
Wise’s family tells KDKA it was that house on Adams Street where he was last seen.
Since the 19-year-old disappeared, hundreds have helped out in the search for him.
Recently, a group of supporters rallied outside the New Castle Police Department.
“We want Amari, we want them to tell where Amari’s at,” said Prestina Currie.
“They can do it privately, at this point, we know’s what’s going on. They can’t hide a body. They did what they did,” Currie said.
Police will continue their search for Todd Henry, the second suspect in the case.
