Two former East Texans have been arrested on charges of first-degree murder and kidnapping in Las Vegas.
Anne Osburn, 21, and Gabriel Yates, 31, are both accused of kidnapping 17 year old Nichole Elizabeth Yegge, killing her, and dumping her body in a shallow grave along U.S. 95, south of the Snow Mountian Paiute Indian Reservation in Nevada. Coroner's reports say that Yegge died of asphyxiation.
Osburn formerly resided in Tyler, and Yates was a former resident of Whitehouse.
Yegge had been reported as a runaway in May. She had no known address, and would have turned 18 on Friday.
Osburn and Yates are currently in the Clark County Detention Center, and are being held without bail.
