BENTON (AP) -- Two people were shot in the head and killed in an isolated area of Saline County and two teen-agers were arrested early today, Sheriff Judy Pridgen said.

She said Eric Ogden, 21, and Lance Kelloms, 17, were killed after apparently agreeing to meet some other people near the site of a new manufactured home that was still vacant.

The sheriff said Jason Meredith and Curtis Reese Jr., both 18, were arrested about 3 a.m. and each was charged with two counts of capital murder.

The wallets of both victims were missing, she said.
