GEORGETOWN, IN (WAVE) - The Harrison County Sheriff's Department said murder and robbery charges are expected in the next 24 hours for two teens suspected of murdering an elderly couple.

According to the department 18-year-old Kevin Andrew Schuler, of Harrison County, and 18-year-old Austin Brian Nelson Scott, of New Albany are suspected of the brutal murder.

Schuler and Scott were initially labeled as "persons of interest." After questioning the suspects and searching multiple locations, police determined that charges would be added.

Police said they recovered items that were stolen from the property, including weapons, in the woods, creeks and fields.

The couple has been identified as Gary Henderson and Asenath Arnold. Henderson was stabbed to death and his partner, Arnold, was beaten to death with a wooden object. They had guns, credit cards and prescription drugs stolen from them which lead police to believe the motive was burglary.

Investigators said a family friend discovered the bodies of the couple in their Georgetown, Indiana home early Saturday. The friend contacted police.

Sheriff Rodney Seelye said, "It was a pretty gruesome scene and currently we are executing a search warrant, collecting evidence at the location."

He said Harrison County has not had a homicide in years. "This is a very good community, wonderful place to live and fortunately this is not normal in this area."
