Four young adults have been indicted in the strangulation deaths of two Joliet men.

The Herald-News in Joliet reported the Thursday indictment. An arraignment is scheduled for Tuesday. The indicted are 24-year-old Joshua Miner, 19-year-old Adam Landerman and 18-year-olds Alisa Massaro and Bethany McKee. Authorities have said they were shocked by the slaying and attempted dismemberment of the two Will County men earlier this month.

Police described the deaths as "brutal" and "heinous." They say police found three suspects playing video games when officers arrived at the scene. Police believe the men were lured to the home before being robbed and killed.

The victims are 22-year-old Eric Glover and 22-year-old Terrance Rankins. The four suspects are held in the Will County jail on $10 million bail.
