ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Authorities say two men have been charged with first-degree murder in the killings of two teenagers whose bodies were found engulfed in flames along a central Florida trail.

The Orlando Sentinel (http://sunsent.nl/JLsN1z ) says 30-year-old Jesse Brandon Davis and 31-year-old Hector Manuel Rodriguez also have been charged with kidnapping in the deaths of 16-year-old Nicholas Presha and 18-year-old Jeremy Stewart in April.

It was not immediately known if the men had lawyers.

Orange County Sheriff Jerry Demings said the Winter Park High School students met the two men intending to sell them two stolen handguns. But he says the teens were robbed and shot with at least one of the stolen guns.

The teens' bodies were found last month on a charred patch of grass along the Cady Way Trail.
