    George Skupien says authorities have identified the remains as 40-year-old Christina Bishop and her 81-year-old mother -- Louise Bishop.

    Authorities have arrested Nicholas Johansen and Michael Winters for capital murder in the case. Johansen is Christina Bishop's son and Louise Bishop's grandson.

    Affidavits released Tuesday by Benton County Prosecuting Attorney Van Stone say Johansen and Winters strangled the women last June and stole $500 and jewelry from them.
    The state Public Defenders Office is to appoint attorneys for the two. They remain in jail without bond.
