PACIFIC, Mo. (KMOV.com) – One person is in custody after two men were found dead in a Franklin County apartment Monday night.

The bodies of Cory Dreiling, 26, and an unidentified 35-year-old man were found with stab wounds at an apartment complex in the 500 block of Monroe in Pacific.

Aaron Hodges, 22, has been charged with two counts of first-degree murder and two counts of first-degree armed criminal action in connection to the deaths.

According to police, Hodges confessed to the murders and walked them through the crime scene.

Authorities say although Hodges is being cooperative in some ways, his motive behind the killings is still unclear. 

Neighbors reported hearing scuffling in the apartment and investigators said the victims could have been dead for over a day before the bodies were found.

Hodges is currently being held one a $1 million bond.
