LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE/LEX 18) — A man who was accused of killing two people and moving their bodies has been charged with murder, according to WAVE.

According to police, Larry Sauer, 35, allegedly murdered Teressa McCoy and Austin Gamez on Dec. 26, 2017.

Documents stated that Sauer took Gamez's body to an unknown location. His body has still not been found.

McCoy's body was found the next day in the parking lot of a Bessler Auto Parts, according to WAVE.

When officers searched Sauer's home on Dec. 12 of this year, they allegedly found about half-a-pound of meth, digital scales and cash.

On Saturday, Sauer was charged with two counts of murder, tampering with physical evidence and trafficking in a controlled substance, according to WAVE.

A not guilty plea was entered for Sauer and the judge ordered him to sign a no-contact order with the families of the victims.

Sauer was taken to the Louisville Metro Department of Corrections with a $250,000 cash bond.

WAVE reported that Sauer is due back in court on Dec. 23.
