Missing women found buried in yard


(WYFF/NBC News) Two men have been charged with murder after the bodies of two missing women were found buried in the yard of a Spartanburg, South Carolina home.

 Spartanburg County Sheriff Chuck Wright says Jonathan Galligan, 39, known as “Stretch,” was arrested on murder charges Saturday after two bodies were found by cadaver dogs on a property where he once lived.

 The coroner said the bodies were found in shallow graves that were approximately 18 inches deep.

 One of the victims was 27-year-old Christin Rene Bunner. She was last seen in December. The other victim was identified as Melissa Fairlee Rhymer, 40.

 Investigators say a second suspect, 41-year-old Christian Hulbert, gave them information about the location of the bodies after a failed suicide attempt last week.
