HARRISON COUNTY (KLTV) - Two arrests have been made in the murder of an East Texas woman who's body was found in a well.

Authorities have arrested Renrick Decarlo Taylor, 20, of Marshall and Jamel De'Shon Cooper, 18, also of Marshall.

Lashun Rena Jenkins' body was found at a drilling site just north of Waskom. Officers obtained some information that led them to physical evidence. A vehicle recovered was said to be used to abduct and murder Ms. Jenkins. Investigators believe Jenkins died at another location and then her body was placed in the well. It appears to have been there for several weeks. There's no word on how the woman died.

Taylor and Cooper were arraigned Wednesday morning. Their bond was set at $1,000,000 each.
