KANSAS CITY — A 31-year-old Missouri man has been charged with first-degree murder in the killing of two sisters from northwest Missouri.

Platte County Attorney Eric Zahnd said Clifford D. Miller of Hartville was charged Monday in the deaths of 19-year-old Britny Haarup and 22-year-old Ashley Key on Friday.

The women's bodies were found late Sunday near Trimble in Clinton County.

They were reported missing Friday after Haarup's fiance, Matt Meyers, found his 6- and 18-month-old daughters alone at the home they shared in Edgerton, about 35 miles north of Kansas City.

A truck missing from the home was found parked on a gravel road Saturday, prompting authorities to search the surrounding fields.
