Two teenagers are facing murder charges after a Gatineau, Que., filmmaker was found dead outside his home in Central America earlier this week.

Matthiew Klinck, 37, was found lying face-up outside his home in the country of Belize, which "appeared ransacked," on Monday night, Belize police previously told CBC News.

He had been stabbed 14 times in his upper body, police said.

Klinck lived in the village of Selena in the western part of Belize. Until his body was found Monday, he had not been seen since Saturday afternoon.

Belize police arrested 19-year-old Brandon Anderson of Belize on Wednesday and charged him Friday morning with murder and conspiracy to commit murder.

Anderson was a close friend of Klinck, police said.

A 16-year-old boy is facing the same charges. He knows Anderson but did not know Klinck, police said.

His name is not being released by police.

Both teens, who were arrested in their respective homes, were scheduled to appear in court Friday and are expected to remain in custody.

Klinck, who grew up in Aylmer, Que., had been living in Belize and worked as a producer, director, videographer and editor.

He directed the 2007 film Greg & Gentillon, about two small-time comedians, and the 2008 film Hank and Mike, an Easter movie about holiday mascots.
