OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Prosecutors say two men have been charged in the death of an Oklahoma woman whose dismembered body was found in a duffel bag behind a grocery store last year.

Jimmy Massey and Luis Ruiz are jailed without bond on first-degree murder charges in the October killing of 19-year-old Carina Saunders. Her body was discovered in a duffel bag spotted by animal welfare workers as they rounded up feral cats in Bethany.

The medical examiner's office has said Saunders died a violent death, but has not disclosed details.

Massey was already in custody on a drug-related charge. An attorney listed as having represented him in his drug case didn't return a message seeking comment.

A jailer said she had no information about whether Ruiz had retained an attorney to represent him.
