SENECA, SC (FOX Carolina) -

The two teens charged in a fatal home invasion in Seneca on Thursday are accused of several other crimes and break-ins in the same area over the last few months, according to the Oconee County Sheriff's Office.

James Toward, 18, and Donte Bacon, 16, were charged with murder earlier in the week and are now facing numerous new charges for other incidents on and near Ames Street in Seneca in November and early December. 

According to warrants provided by the Oconee County Sheriff's office, Bacon and Toward are facing charges for the vandalism of Ann Hope Church on Goddard Avenue in Seneca. The Oconee County Sheriff's Office said more than $9,000 in property was reported stolen from the church sometime between Nov. 21 and Nov. 23.

The pair is also charged with causing an explosion and third degree arson at 27 Ames Street on Nov. 28, the warrants said. The two are also accused of stealing over $10,000 in property from the home that officials said was occupied by a woman in a "dating relationship" with an officer of the sheriff's office.

On the warrants, Toward's address is listed as 23 Ames Street, in close proximity to many of the incidents.

According to warrants, Donna Lee Bretz, 42, was charged with accessory after the fact to a felony or murder in connection with burglaries in late November. Deputies said Bretz is not charged in connection with the murder on Thursday. Bretz's address is listed as the same as Toward's on the warrants.
