NEVADA COUNTY, Calif. - New evidence has been found in the murder of a Nevada County Vietnam veteran.

A team from the Human Identification Laboratory at Chico State joined deputies in identifying the new clues.

Deputies say 70 year old Stanley Norman's life ended in a violent attack in the backyard of a Nevada City home. On Friday investigators served a search warrant at the property. They found human teeth, bone fragments, and rings.

Investigators warned that there are a lot of details that are going to come out that don't paint a pretty picture of how Stan Norman's life ended.  They said that the puzzle pieces are falling into place due to the amazing team of professionals that are working to figure out what exactly happen to the veteran.

Two men are now under arrest in the murder and torture case. Police arrested Sean Bryant over Memorial Day weekend. Investigators arrested a second suspect, Michael Mccauley, a week ago.

Both will be formally charged this week
