Two men have been charged with first-degree murder in connection with the death of a man whose body was found last month.

Dart says both men were denied bond during their court appearance Monday.
The sheriff's office says police officers last month were called to a street near Calumet Park, south of Chicago, where they found a man's body riddled with bullets. The 35-year-old Bell was the subject of a missing person's investigation.
Dart's office says weapons, blood and cleaning materials were found in Johnson's apartment. It wasn't immediately known if Johnson and Larkin have legal representation.
