Two teenage boys have been charged with first-degree murder in the deaths of a Saskatchewan couple on Monday.

Police have not identified the victims, but CBC has been told they are Genne and Theresa Nolin, well-known for their involvement in the community and in chuck-racing.

Their bodies were found in a home in the Rapid View district, which is in the northwest part of the province, about 27 kilometres west of Meadow Lake.

One of the youths was spotted with a gun in Prince Albert on Monday and was arrested.

The second youth was arrested by Prince Albert city police later in the day.

Autopsies of the victims were scheduled for Tuesday and Wednesday.

Under provisions of the Youth Criminal Justice Act, the names of the youths can't be released.

The two appeared in a court in Prince Albert Tuesday and are being held in custody. They'll be back in court in Meadow Lake on Nov. 5.
