AXTON, Va. (AP) - Police are investigating the deaths of two Henry County brothers as homicides.

The Henry County Sheriff's Office tells media outlets that deputies responding to an accident report found 40-year-old Alfonso Navarro-Pena late Friday night in a pickup truck in Axton. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Deputies found the body of 33-year-old Noel Navarro-Pena on Saturday morning in a parking lot in Axton.
