JEFF DAVIS PARISH, LA (KPLC) -

Two Jennings men have been arrested in connection with the body found floating in the Grand Marais Canal last week, authorities said. 

Parker Gary and Ryan Cole, both 17, were charged with first-degree murder in the death of Dedrick Gant, 40, said Jeff Davis Sheriff's Office Chief Deputy Chris Ivey. Detectives obtained arrest warrants around 8 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 29 and served the warrants on both Gary and Cole.

Gary and Cole were already incarcerated in the parish jail in connection with the burglary and murder of Warren Gary on Tuesday, Nov. 15.

The Jeff Davis Parish Sheriff's Office is continuing its investigation and no additional information can be released at this time, Ivey said.

Gant's body was "severely decomposed" when it was found.
