HENRICO COUNTY, Va. -- Two women were charged with second-degree murder in the death of 19-year-old Martre Lamonte Coles.

The Highland Springs graduate's body was found April 2 in a plastic storage container stashed behind an electrical box near the Mondelez International Inc. plant, on Gorman Road, in eastern Henrico.

Coles had been reported missing March 12.

Denise Monique Gay, 48, and Latoya Shantice Gay, 21, were arrested and charged with Coles' murder. Denise is Latoya's mother.

Denise Gay was in a relationship with Coles' dad and Coles' sister, Michelle Coles, says she has a theory on why Gay allegedly killed her brother.

"She just didn't like him, I think it had a lot to do with jealousy as far as her position with my father and wanting to be more," she said.

Family members said they will remember him with a big heart who had a zest for life and didn’t deserve to die.

The circumstances surrounding Coles' death have not yet been made public.
