COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Two Ohio men have become the latest people to be charged in connection to the deadly Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S Capitol after being identified by family and acquaintances to the FBI, according to U.S. District Court documents.

Thirty-nine-year-old Derek Jancart and 21-year-old Alexander Sheppard join the eight other Ohioans accused of accompanying a mob of supporters of former President Donald Trump as they smashed their way into the U.S. Capitol. Five people, including a U.S. Capitol Police officer, died in the Jan. 6 assault.

Federal court documents did not list an attorney for either man.
