Two men who are wanted in connection with the death of a Marshall County man are resisting extradition.

Maeson Coffin, 19, and Gauvin Monaghan, 18, were arrested in Watertown, New York, on Sunday. On Wednesday, Marshall County Prosecutor E. Nelson Chipman said the two refused to waive extradition back to Indiana, according to the South Bend Tribune.

Their arrests came the day after 78-year-old Richard Paul Costello was found dead by family members on his property just outside Plymouth. Each faces charges of auto theft after they allegedly stole a Costello’s car, and they are considered “persons of interest” in the killing.

The two men rented a house from Costello on his property.

On Thursday, Coffin and Monaghan were charged with Costello’s murder.
