New Jersey authorities have charged two brothers in the slaying of two co-workers at a horse farm. Carlos Reyes, who is 41, is charged with two counts of murder. His 38-year-old brother, Cesar Reyes, is charged as a material witness.

The Honduran nationals were taken into custody last week in Houston, Texas, where they remain held without bail by immigration officials pending extradition.

They're charged with the killings of 27-year-old Alex Aguilar and 48-year-old Marcial Morales-Maldonado. The men, also from Honduras, were found bludgeoned to death on Feb. 28 at the Sterling Chase Horse Farm in Springfield.

The four worked and shared living quarters at the Burlington County farm.
