    Two women face charges in connection to the death of a man whose burned body was discovered in an empty field.

    Prosecutors say Alondra Gil and Mercedes Diaz-Wright, both 22 and of Northampton, were arraigned in Hampshire Superior Court Wednesday on charges that include perjury and lying to an officer.

    The women allegedly misled authorities in April during a grand jury investigation into the death of 44-year-old Daniel Cruz. Attorneys for both women could not be immediately identified.

    Cruz's burned body was found in a Hatfield field in March.
