Boulder, CO (AP) - Two more men have been charged in the suspected drug-related killing of a Colorado man whose body was found in Wyoming.

The Daily Camera reports Daniel Ortiz and Moises Mendez were both charged Friday with felony first-degree murder, robbery and aggravated motor-vehicle theft in the death of 25-year-old Nathaniel Tallman of Lafayette.

Last week, Russell Britton was also charged with first-degree murder and other counts in the case.

Prosecutors have not revealed which man is suspected of actually shooting Tallman.

Tallman disappeared on Jan. 21. Investigators say he left to meet Britton that day to "conduct a marijuana transaction" but that Britton said Tallman never showed up.

His body was found March 13 along a highway near Lusk, Wyo.
