FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Two men are in custody in connection to the murder of 34-year-old Salvador Valdavinos, according to Hanford Police.

Valdavinos was reported missing by his family on Jan. 1, and investigators recovered his body on Jan. 5.

Both suspects are being held without bail in the Kings County Jail.
