Two people are now charged in the death of a Minneapolis man who had been reported missing on Nov. 15. The body of 29-year-old William Albrecht was found last week in a remote area near the Costco in Woodbury. Two men he was last seen with at a home in Bloomington, Skylar Edmond Labarge and Preston Scott Sharlow, are charged with second degree murder. Investigators say Albrecht was lured to a home by the two brothers, was violently assaulted and then went missing shortly afterwards. Police obtained a warrant for the home and found multiple areas stained by a substance thought to be blood. There was also evidence that someone had recently used strong cleaning chemicals in the house. Police say the brothers both admitted to taking part in the beating.
