    Two men face murder charges in the shooting deaths of two people whose bodies found in a wooded area of Camden last year.

    Camden County Prosecutor Warren Faulk says 38-year-old Jose Cortes of Riverton was arrested on Monday, while 35-year-old Jorge Lopez of Gloucester City was taken into custody on Friday.

    Each man faces two counts of murder, and it's not known if either has retained an attorney.

    The charges stem from the deaths of 34-year-old Christopher Humphrey of Franklinville and 35-year-old Jose Vega of Camden.

    Authorities say Humphrey and Vega were killed Dec. 21 at a home on the 700 block of South 4th Street. Their bodies were found the next day in a wooded area near 33rd and Farragut streets.
