Two men who had been held in Ohio in connection with a 1999 cold case out of Lewis County, West Virginia, have been extradited back to the Mountain State.
Steve Freeman and David Hughes are now being held in the Central Regional Jail in Sutton and are charged with first-degree murder, kidnapping and robbery. Deputies have said they are connected to the deaths of Maxine Stalnaker, 69, and Mary Friend, 46. The two women’s bodies have never been found.
In September, Joseph Metz, 39, was charged with two counts each of first-degree murder, kidnapping and robbery. Police said Friend is Metz's mother and Stalnaker is his grandmother.
