KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — A 31-year-old Missouri man has been charged with first-degree murder in the killing of two sisters from northwest Missouri.

Platte County Attorney Eric Zahnd says Clifford D. Miller of Trimble, Mo., was charged Monday in the deaths of 19-year-old Britny Haarup and 22-year-old Ashley Key on Friday.

The women's bodies were found late Sunday near Trimble in Clinton County.

They were reported missing Friday after Haarup's fiance, Matt Meyers, found his 6- and 18-month old daughters alone at the home they shared in Edgerton, about 35 miles north of Kansas City.

A truck missing from the home was found parked on a gravel road Saturday, prompting authorities to search the surrounding fields.
