A Canton High School student and another teenager have been charged in the slaying, burning and mutilation of a 26-year-old man.

Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy says 17-year-old Jean-Pierre Orlewicz and 18-year-old Alexander James Letkemann will be arraigned later in the day on one count each of first-degree premeditated murder, felony murder and mutilation of a corpse.

Worthy says Daniel Sorenson of River Rouge repeatedly was stabbed last Wednesday and his head sawed off.

Sorenson's burned torso was found Thursday in a cul-de-sac in Northville Township. The head was found Saturday in the Rouge River on the border between Dearborn Heights and Detroit.

Worthy says the slaying had nothing to do with Sorenson being a registered sex offender.
