KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Five people have been charged in the death of a developmentally disabled Missouri man whose body was found encased in concrete months after he disappeared. 

Two of those arrested and charged Tuesday ran the home in Fulton where 31-year-old Carl DeBrodie lived before he disappeared in 2016. His body was found in April 2017 in a Fulton storage shed. 

Callaway County Prosecutor Christopher Wilson announced that 53-year-old Sherry Paulo and 58-year-old Anthony R. Flores, both of Fulton, face five counts in DeBrodie's death, including first-degree involuntary manslaughter. 

The three others face misdemeanors of making a false report of a missing person. 

A lawsuit filed last week alleged Paulo and Flores took DeBrodie to their home, forced him to fight and then left him to die before disposing of his body.
