Three additional men have been charged in a double homicide last month in an Owings Mills apartment, police said.

Brian Bartee, 18, of the 9300 block of Leigh Choice Court in Owings Mills, Kion Coulter, 26, of the first block of Rocky Brook Court in Woodlawn and Marcus Pettiford, 19, of the first block of Sesame Court in Reisterstown were arrested Friday. Each was charged with two counts of first-degree murder, police said yesterday.

The men were being held without bail at the Baltimore County Detention Center after being charged in the deaths of Howard Thacker Jr., 35, and his 17-year-old nephew, Dante Rodney Thacker.

Their bodies were found in their apartment in the 100 block of Village Mill Court after an apparent robbery, according to police. Two Randallstown men had previously been charged in the slaying.
