ORLANDO (CBSMiami/AP) — Two people are under arrest after St. Petersburg Police found a body inside a home which may have been concealed for up to two weeks.

Authorities say they began investigating about 1 a.m. Saturday after receiving information a murder had taken place at the residence. Their subsequent investigation concluded that it appeared 45-year-old Jennifer Schlag and 40-year-old Derrick McMillin had killed a 54-year-old male acquaintance inside the home sometime within the last week or two. The motive, police said, appears to be over a drug-related issue.

The body, which had been hidden on the property, has since been recovered. The victim's name has not yet been released pending next-of-kin notification.

Police say both Schlag and McMillin will charged with first-degree murder.
