Two more charged in Castle Rock slayings

CASTLE ROCK, Colo. (AP) - Two more people are now accused in connection with the slayings of a man and his sister-in-law in Douglas County.

Authorities said Monday that two women were arrested last week on suspicion of being accessories. Twenty-one-year-old Krystal Kurcz and 22-year-old Megan Cassidy were released after posting bond.

The bodies of 39-year-old Amara Wells and her brother-in-law, 49-year-old Robert Rafferty, were found in his home on Feb. 23. They were stabbed and shot in what authorities believe was a double murder-for-hire.

Investigators believe Rafferty's wife was also an intended target but was out-of-town at the time.

Four men have been charged with murder in the slayings, including 38-year-old Christopher Wells, the estranged husband of Amara Wells.  Documents relating to the case have been sealed and investigators haven't released any details about the allegations.
