FLINT (WWJ/AP) - Two additional suspects have been arraigned on charges linked to the discovery of two bodies found under a door floating in the Flint River.

Sixteen-year-old Cheveyo Molina is charged with two counts of first-degree murder and using a firearm to commit a felony, and 47-year-old Melinda Kelly is charged with felony counts of tampering with evidence and being an accessory after the fact to a felony, WJRT-TV reported. They were arrested last Sunday.

Molina was ordered held without bond, while Kelly was given a $50,000 bond. 

Robert Wheeler, 24, was arrested at the scene when the bodies were found July 12. He faces two counts of first-degree murder, tampering with evidence and using a firearm to commit a felony. He remains in custody without bond.

Kelly is Wheeler's mother, according to reports. 

The bodies of 32-year-old Rodney Harden Jr. and 19-year-old Tedmundo Meeks were found near a riverbank by a fisherman who moved the door so his line wouldn't get tangled. Police haven't said how they died.

Police found a hole nearby the river allegedly dug by the suspects, according to WJRT-TV, that was large enough to fit a body, leading investigators to believe it may have been a grave.

A motive for the killings has not yet been released.
