Jerel Knights, 22,is charged with murder, tampering with evidence and abuse of a corpse. Doniere Love, 23, is accused of tampering and abuse of a corpse. Both men were being held in the Summit County Jail.

They are accused in the strangulation death of Clarence Keyes, 50, whose body was found Sept. 22 outside an apartment in the 400 block of West Miller Avenue.
