HARRISON COUNTY, Ind.  --  The two suspects charged in the brutal murder of a Harrison County, Ind. Couple appeared in court Friday.

Austin Scott, 18, and Kevin Drew Schuler, 18, are charged in the murder of Gary Henderson and Asenath Arnold.

The accused killers stood briefly in front of a judge confirming their legal representation. Both suspects hired private attorneys. A jury trial is set for November 19.

Investigators believe Scott stabbed Henderson multiple times and Schuler beat Arnold to death before they stole pills, guns, and money.

The family of the victim's was in court today in support.

"We want to see justice served. We will let the courts handle it. It doesn't handle our feelings and emotions," said Sue-z Schmelz, Henderson's daughter.

A vigil will be held Friday night at 9 p.m at Hubers Farm in the couple's honor. Henderson worked giving pony rides for decades at Hubers Farm.

"They were like family up here at Hubers. It was like we lost a member of our family a few weeks ago," said Joe Huber.

A stone memorial now sits near the site of the carousel Henderson built.

His family is asking for people to come to the vigil and share their memories of the couple.
