UPDATE 5:56 P.M. 7/17/2014:
According to the Lewis County Grand Jury Indictment, Charles Freemen and Joesph Metz will be arraigned at 9:00 a.m Friday.
Freeman was arrested Wednesday night in Ohio on a fugitive warrant, and Metz was arrested last year for first-degree murder, and are both accused of killing Maxine Stalnaker and Mary Friend in 1999.
5 News is continuing to find out new details in this case, and will deliver them as they become available.
A man wanted on murder charges from a case in 1999 was rearrested Wednesday evening.
Charles Steven Freeman was arrested in Ohio on a fugitive warrant
Freeman is accused of killing Maxine Stalnaker and Mary Friend. According to the report, Freeman is at the Corrections Center of Northwest Ohio. 5 News is working to confirm this information.
The bodies of the pair, who went missing in December 1999, have never been found.
Freeman, along with two other men, David Hughes and Joseph Metz, were originally arrested in connection to this crime in September 2013. Metz is the son of Friend and Stalnaker's grandson. Charges were dismissed against all three men in November. Since then, Metz was arrested again and charged with first degree murder. Hughes attempted to enter a guilty plea for conspiracy to commit an armed robbery. That plea hasn't been accepted yet.
