Authorities say decades-old DNA led to the arrests of two men in connection with the shotgun slayings of two girls in California more than 40 years ago.

They arrested one suspect in Oklahoma and another in California on Tuesday after comparing their DNA with semen from both men found on one of the victims.

Twelve-year-old Valerie Janice Lane and 13-year-old Doris Karen Derryberry of Olivehurst, California, went missing after going on a weekend shopping trip in November 1973.

Yuba County, California, Sheriff Steve Durfor says their bodies were found in a wooded area near Marysville, north of Sacramento, where they had been shot at close range.

Arrested were 65-year-old Larry Don Patterson of Oakhurst, Oklahoma, and 65-year-old William Lloyd Harbour of Olivehurst, California.

District Attorney Patrick McGrath says both will face murder charges.
