Christopher and William Cormier


Georgia twins charged in the death of a former Pensacola newspaper reporter made brief appearances in a Florida courtroom.

On Friday, William Cormier was arraigned on a charge of murder and robbery and his brother Christopher Cormier was charged with accessory to murder and armed robbery in the death of Sean Dugas.

Dugas' body was found in October, encased in concrete and buried in the backyard of the Widner, Ga., home of the twins' father.

Both men are being held in the Escambia County Jail pending a March 11 trial. They have pleaded not guilty to the charges.

Prosecutors say the twins killed Dugas and then stole him of a collection of cards for the game Magic: The Gathering. The men sold some of the cards for thousands of dollars.
