LAUREL, Md. (AP) — Prince George's County Police have charged two roommates of a man whose body was found in two bags in Laurel with his slaying.

The body of 28-year-old Jacinto Perez was found Sunday morning. Police said Thursday that 32-year-old Santos Leonel Mejia-Yanes has been arrested and charged with first- and second-degree murder in Perez's death. He is being held without bond.

Officers also obtained a warrant for another of Perez's roommates, 34-year-old Bayron Cruz-Vargar, charging him with first-degree murder.

Authorities say Perez was killed after the three men got into an argument.
