Police say the strangulation and attempted dismemberment of two men in Joliet is one of the most heinous cases they've seen.

Three of the people arrested were playing video games when police arrived at the home, where the bodies of Eric Glover and Terrence Rankins were found Thursday.

Police Chief Mike Trafton calls the case "one of the most brutal, heinous and upsetting" in his 27 years in law enforcement.

Police say Glover and Rankins were lured to the home of 18-year-old Alisa Massaro and robbed and killed. Officers called to the home discovered the bodies and found Massaro playing video games with 19-year-old Adam Landerman and 24-year-old Joshua Miner.

They face first-degree murder charges along with 18-year-old Bethany McKee.
