TWIN FALLS, Idaho (AP) -- Two more people have been charged with robbing a man who was later found dead in his Twin Falls home last May.

The Times -News reports that 31-year-old Dwayne McCormick and 20-year-old Katie Pingree, both of Twin Falls, were each arraigned on a robbery count in Twin Falls County Magistrate Court Friday.

According to court records, police say the two helped beat, bind and rob Tigre Martinez in the early morning hours of May 26. The man's roommate found him dead in the basement.

Another man, Caleb Hinton, has been charged with aggravated assault and intimidating a witness earlier this year in connection with the robbery.

McCormick is being held in Twin Falls County Jail in lieu of $500,000 bond while Pingree is being held in lieu of $250,000 bond. Both have preliminary hearings Friday.
