GLOUCESTER COUNTY, N.J. -

Investigators in Gloucester County say two brothers, both teenagers, were charged Tuesday in the death of 12-year-old Autumn Pasquale.

The two face first degree murder and other charges and are currently in police custody.

An autopsy performed on her body earlier Tuesday revealed the cause of death to be blunt force trauma and strangulation.

Investigators say there were no signs of sexual assault.

At this point, the names of the two teenagers are not being released.

Fox 29 cameras recorded exclusive video as the two teenagers were escorted by investigators into the prosecutor's office in Gloucester County, where they turned themselves in (You can see the video above this story and a picture to the right).

It appears Pasquale was lured to a home where the murder was committed, investigators said. Police say they executed a search warrant on the home, where they found her personal belongings, including her bike and other pieces of evidence.

Investigators say a parent caught wind that something was going on with the two boys based on a Facebook post. The parent then notified police, which led them to the home and Pasquale's body.

Pasquale's body was discovered stuffed inside a recycling bin not far from her Clayton home. She was reported missing Saturday.

As many as 20 different law enforcement agencies were involved in the search.
