Twins charged in Ga. killing in Fla. jail

Posted: Updated:
PENSACOLA, Fla. -

The twin brothers accused in the killing of a former journalist whose body was found buried in concrete in Georgia are being held in a Florida jail to face murder charges.

Escambia County Jail records show William and Christopher Cormier were booked late Friday night, about a week after signing a waiver of extradition. They're being held without bond on homicide and robbery charges.

Jail records don't list an attorney.

The body of Sean Dugas was found Oct. 8 encased in concrete and buried in the backyard of the twins' father's home in Winder, Ga. Police went to the home after being contacted by Florida authorities investigating Dugas' disappearance.

The twins originally faced charges in Georgia but investigators determined the slaying likely happened in Florida.
