Two people will stand trial on homicide charges for their alleged roles in the killings of two people in Lebanon County, while a third suspect remains at large.

Rick Cannon and Akeita Harden waived their rights to a preliminary hearing before a district judge in Lebanon County on Tuesday.

Cannon and Harden played a role in the shooting deaths of Marcus Antonio Ortiz and Keith Crawford inside an apartment at 714 Fox Ridge Lane in South Lebanon Township on March 10, police said.

Both suspects remain behind bars in the Lebanon County Correctional Facility without bail.

A third suspect, Eddie Lee Williams Jr., is still being sought. He should be considered armed and dangerous, police said.

Jones, Marcus Williams, Aaron Williams, Tyreem Haines, and Eddie Williams, said police, adding that he also uses numerous birth dates, which give him an age range of between 33 and 39.
