BUTTE — Two suspects in the death of a man at a southwestern Montana campground have been returned to Beaverhead County to face charges.

County Attorney Jed Fitch says 29-year-old Christopher Lee Stiles was charged by warrant with deliberate homicide while 49-year-old Sandra Lee Ann Cantrell was charged with accountability to deliberate homicide in the death of Mark Robert Mullen of Butte. Both also were charged in Justice Court Tuesday with stealing Mullen's motorhome and tampering with evidence. They have not entered pleas and bail was set at $500,000 each.

Fitch says he must have the charges filed in District Court by Sept. 11.

Mullen's body was found near a campground about 8 miles west of Wise River on Aug. 9. Officials have not said how he died.

Stiles and Cantrell were arrested in Missoula on Aug. 12.
