Two people have been charged with first-degree murder in connection to the weekend homicide of a Lampe man.
Stone County prosecutor Matt Selby says Annmarie Patrick, 19, and Justn Tuttle, 29, have also been charged with armed criminal action. Selby says the probable cause statement and the search warrant applications and returns have been sealed by the court so they can wrap up the investigation.

A family who were out for a Sunday morning outing discovered the body of 28 year-old Daniel J. Martin Jr., who was reported missing by family members on Saturday, floating in Table Rock Lake at the end of Jones Trading Post Road just south of Lampe.
Sources say that Martin, who was a groundskeeper at Big Cedar Wilderness Lodge and a graduate of Blue Eye High School, had been beaten and shot before his body was dumped into the Lake.
Patrick and Tuttle are each being held on $1 million dollars bond.
