Four young adults are being held in lieu of $10 million bail in connection with the strangulation deaths of two men in Joliet, Ill., authorities said.


Adam M. Landerman, 19; Alisa R. Massaro, 18; Bethany L. McKee, 18; and Joshua F. Miner, 24, were charged about 4 p.m. Friday with six counts of first-degree murder for the deaths of Eric Glover, 22, and Terrence O. Rankins, 22, according to a press release from Joliet Police.

Police discovered the bodies of Glover and Rankins on Thursday afternoon at 1121 North Hickory after receiving a tip. Landerman, Massaro and Miner were also found in the residence.

The three were playing video games when police arrived, according to a Herald-News report. Police told the Herald-News they had attempted to dismember the bodies before continuing the "party atmosphere."

McKee was taken into custody a short time later, the Joliet Police Department press release stated.

Further investigation led to all four being charged.
