Two 18-year-olds have been charged with murder in a deadly weekend home invasion in Morehead.

Demario Powell and Marcus Stewart, both of Morehead, were arrested Tuesday, Kentucky State Police said in a news release.

Bo Otis, 20, who was shot in the head Sunday, died the next later at University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital.

About 1:20 p.m. Sunday, state police were called to a home on Rose Road in Morehead. They found Otis, who was taken to St. Claire Regional Medical Center in Morehead and then airlifted to UK, the release said.

The Herald-Leader's reporting partner, WKYT-TV, reported that state police also are looking for Anthony Paysen, Julius Kolowitz and JaQue Abrams in connection with the shooting.

Powell and Stewart were being held at the Rowan County Detention Center on a $1 million bail. They're scheduled to be in court Wednesday.
