ELIZABETHTOWN, Ky. (AP) - Two people have been charged with kidnapping and murder after police say they found a body inside the trunk of a car in Hardin County.

The News-Enterprise reported that 24-year-old Octavio Fernandez Correa and 31-year-old Tiffany Nicole Hodges are scheduled for arraignment Monday in Hardin County District Court.

Police say Correa kidnapped the person from a home in Munfordville and drove to Glendale in the victim's car. Police say Hodges said she helped Correa bind the victim and wrap him in a blanket and also told police she saw Correa shoot the victim in the head.

Correa and Hodges are being held at the Hardin County Detention Center in lieu of a $1 million cash bond.

Jail records did not list an attorney for either person.
