WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) - Salina police say they have arrested two people in connection to a man who was found dead earlier this month.

After Jason Latham’s days-old body was found on May 8, police investigated his death as suspicious, eventually concluding it was a homicide. Monday, they announced they’ve arrested Johnathon Mullen and Kelly Luthi. Both were charged on May 19 of first-degree murder, and Luthi was also charged with aiding and abetting.

Latham’s body was discovered by a fellow citizen on May 8. Later that week, an autopsy was completed, with toxicology reports pending.

The police announcement Monday did not indicate a cause of death.
