SAN JOAQUIN COUNTY (CBS13) — The San Joaquin County District Attorney’s office has requested for two murder charges to be added on top of the eight counts of child abuse that Aaron Weddles and Princess Canez-Walker already face.

The couple and their five kids disappeared in January of last year and were later found. But to this day, Setina and her twin brother Ren are still missing. The two counts of murder allege Weddles and Canez Walker are liable for the death of their two children. The DA said neither of the children’s’ bodies has been found.
