35-year-old Marc McMurrain and his wife 32-year-old Jennifer McMurrain are in the
The body of 29-year-old Christopher Garrity, Marc's brother, was found near the home they shared.
Garrity had supposedly disappeared two weeks ago.
This is the area where the body of Christopher Garrity was found.
Not far from the home he shared with his brother, Marc McMurrain, sister-in-law, Jennifer and the couple's four children.
Neighbor Tracy Sadler knew the brothers didn't get along.
“Conversations Marc would have with my husband, and also his mother would give her concerns about her two sons not getting along,” Sadler said.
She says late last month, Marc told neighbors his brother, Chris, had gone missing.
Marc said Chris had mental health issues and would wander off, so he wasn't worried.
“I do remember our dogs one night around that time really going crazy and my husband finally getting up and checking outside and he noticed some lights were on,” Sadler said.
The couple didn't think it was unusual at the time.
But roughly two weeks later, search teams found Chris's remains and arrested Marc and Jennifer for murder.
“It's just incredible that could take place anywhere much less your back yard,” Sadler said.
Marc McMurrain was already in trouble with the law for alleged willful cruelty to a child.
Last May, authorities say McMurrain left his eight-and-a-half month old son alone in a van. The child crawled out a window, fell, and hit his head.
The McMurrain's four children, ages , are in protective custody.
“It's just a very sad situation. I just hope they can be reunited with their grandparents and have some kind of stability,” Sadler said.
Marc and Jennifer McMurrain are being held on one million dollars bail each.
