Police say autopsies are planned for a man and a teenager found dead in the Carver Cemetery in southern Wayne County.Investigators have identified the bodies as 29-year-old Tiqko King of East Nelson Street, Mount Olive and 16-year-old Martavia Shevon Royster of East Kornegay Street, Mount Olive.

The Mount Olive Police Department says it's learned the two were in a relationship and there is no physical evidence showing anyone else was involved in their deaths.

Officers say a sexual assault reported Friday in the same cemetery is not related to the case.

The autopsies will be performed by the Chief Medical Examiner in Chapel Hill and other evidence will be tested by the North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation lab in Raleigh.
