LOS ANGELES (CBS/AP) — A second body has been unearthed from the backyard of a Los Angeles County drug house, four days after investigators dug up the remains of the 53-year-old homeowner.

Sheriff’s Sgt. Edmundo Hummel tells the Los Angeles Times the unidentified body was found Saturday at the house in the unincorporated Lennox area.
The first body, found Tuesday, was identified through fingerprints as 53-year-old James Daniel Stein.

“It is wrapped in some items that are going to be taken as evidence,” LA County Asst. Chief Coroner Ed Winter said of the first body.

Stein lived in the house and was missing since December.   The  second body has been positively identified as that of Gabriela Stein, wife of homeowner Daniel Stein.

The Sheriff’s Department describes 26-year-old Marcos Lomeli as a person of interest in the case. He is in custody on unrelated charges of robbery and carjacking.
