Two Hobbs men are behind bars for their connection to the disappearance and death of a Seminole woman.

30-year-old Juan Villegas and 43-year-old Carlos Najera were picked up by Hobbs Police on Tuesday.

They are facing charges of capital murder in the death of 24-year-old Ana Villegas.

She was reported missing on November 21 and her body was found in Eddy County eight days later.

Officials say Ana was bound and naked and she died from asphyxiation.

The Eddy County Sheriff's Office, the Gaines County Sheriff's Office, Hobbs Police and the FBI all teamed up for the investigation.

Villegas and Najera are currently being held on $1 million dollar bond each.
