HANCOCK COUNTY, MS (WAFB) -

Authorities are planning to file charges against two people accused of killing a New Orleans dancer.

The Hancock County Sheriff's Office is building a case against Terry Speaks and Margaret Sanchez, the last two people to see Jaren Lockhart alive.

Lockhart's mutilated body washed up in Mississippi last summer.

Sparks is in jail in North Carolina on unrelated charges.

Investigators say they don't believe there is enough evidence to try the pair for murder, so they're looking into alternate charges.

Evidence will go to the district attorney's office, then possibly a grand jury.
