— Two more people have been arrested in Dallas County in the death of a woman whose body was found buried beneath the floor of a shed.

The body of 34-year-old Nancy Harvill beneath the dirt floor of a shed in Fordyce earlier this month and police say her stepbrother, 25-year-old John Aldrich, admitted killing and burying Harvill in 2011.

Dallas County deputies have also arrested Christopher Aldrich, Harvill’s stepbrother, and Sherri Bowen, Harvill’s stepmother. They’re charged with capital murder and other counts.

Little Rock television station KTHV reports that Bowen and John Aldrich made their first court appearances Monday. Bond was set for $250,000 for both. Harvill’s young children are in DHS custody.

Investigators say the suspects beat and tortured Harvill for two days before she died.
