BIG ISLAND (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Two of the four suspects arrested earlier this week have been charged in connection with a 2015 murder of a 69-year-old Holualoa man.

Hawaii Island police charged Eber Miranda-Garcia and Marlon Miranda-Garcia with second degree murder Thursday, and second degree conspiracy to commit a murder.

The two are allegedly linked to the killing of 69-year-old Dolores Borja Valle. His body was found in Kona's Captain Cook area in August 2015. 

Two two men were arrested earlier this week in addition to two other suspects, Jessilyn Lokelani Hoohuli and Himer Miranda-Garcia.

Police used DNA testing in the investigation to connect the suspects to the murder, and make the arrests.

Hoohuli and Himer Miranda-Garcia were released pending investigation. Eber and Marlon Miranda-Garcia remain in police custody. Their bail is set at $500,000 each.
