Fremont County authorities have arrested two juveniles who will be charged with murder and attempted murder, in the case involving a man found dead and a woman found unresponsive early Wednesday morning.

The Fremont County Sheriff's Office says the suspects are 15 and 16 year old boys.  Both suspects are looking at charges of one count of second-degree murder and one count of attempted second-degree murder against each of them.

The victims were found along the Rails to Trails Pathway in Riverton. The male, who was described by authorities as Native American, was declared dead at the scene. The victim that survived is a woman in her 30's, who remains in critical condition.

Authorities said earlier that she was airlifted to the Wyoming Medical Center, but are now saying she is hospitalized at an undisclosed location.
