CORVALLIS, Ore. (AP) -- Authorities say two men have been charged in the death of a Corvallis man whose body was found last month in a grove of trees, and more arrests are expected.

The Benton County sheriff's office said Monday that Santiago Mendez Flores is accused of murder and conspiracy, and Jose Luis Brambila is accused of using a weapon illegally and conspiring to use a weapon illegally. Both are from Corvallis.

A man cutting wood on Sept. 23 found 22-old Giovanni Blancas-Frutero. He was reported missing 10 days earlier.
