The two are set to appear in court on the murder charges on Wednesday morning.

According to police, a 911 call brought emergency crews and police to the alley on the west side of the 500 block of 5th Avenue North this past August. The caller said that an assault was taking place.

Police arrived and found Diehl. He was examined by members of the ambulance crew, who found he was dead.
