WESTMINSTER, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Deputies with the Oconee County Sheriff's Office said they have made two more arrests related to the murder of Richard Marszalek.

Margaret Morrow, 53, of West Pine Grove Road in Fair Play and Carrie Tyner, 29, of Jos Place in Westminster are accused of acting in a "criminally negligent manner" by not revealing the information they had about the murder to officers when interviewed by deputies, according to Jimmy Watt, spokesman for the Oconee County Sheriff's Office.

Watt said Morrow and Tyner were both charged with misprision of a felony.

"When someone has knowledge of a crime and are questioned about that crime and they either give false information about the crime or deceive investigators in any way, then law enforcement can charge them with misprision of a felony," Watt said.

Watt said deputies discovered drugs hidden in Morrow's socks while taking her into custody Thursday. Watt said she was also charged with bringing contraband, Percocet and Clonazepam, into the detention center.

Tyner is being held on a $10,000 surety bond. Morrow is awaiting a bond hearing at the Oconee County Detention Center.

Marszalek was found dead in the rubble of his burned home along West Spearman Road in January. Investigators say his home was burned down on Jan. 4, 2014.

Joshua Fulbright and Zach Patterson were charged with murder and other charges in Marszalek's death.

A third man, Patrick Covone, had also been charged with murder but a magistrate judge dropped the charge against Covone during a preliminary hearing in February.
