The two men charged with killing a Bellows Falls woman are due to make their first appearances in a Brattleboro courtroom.

Police say 29-year-old Frank Caraballo of Brattleboro, had been searching for the victim, 31-year-old Melissa Barratt, in connection with drug-related activity before she was found dead Friday in Dummerston.

Caraballo and 22-year-old Joshua Makhanda-Lopez of Springfield, Mass., have been charged with second-degree homicide and unlawful restraint. Both also face unrelated charges of selling crack-cocaine.

They are due to appear in court today.

Caraballo and Makhanda-Lopez have been held pending their court appearances.
