New Castle County Police have charged two men with the 2013 slayings of a couple at the Paladin Club Condominiums in Wilmington.

31-year-old Christopher Rivers and 29-year-old Joshua Bey, both of Wilmington, have been arrested in connection with the killings.

Forty-six-year-old Joseph Connell and his 39-year-old wife, Olga, were found at the condominiums on Sept. 22, after police responded to a report of shots fired.



Joseph was pronounced dead at the scene while Olga was taken to a hospital, where she later died.

The couple worked at C&S Auto Service on Concord Pike - Joseph as a mechanic and Olga as a receptionist.

The day after the crime, Action News talked to Rivers, Joseph's business partner and friend, and he appeared distraught.

Now police say it was all an act.

Both Rivers and Bey are charged with two counts of first-degree murder and are being held without bail.
