DETROIT (WJBK) - Wayne Co. Prosecutor Kym Worthy has charged two men in connection with the homicide of Alicia Fox, the woman who was found dead in an abandoned home earlier this week. Her two children are still missing.

Fox's husband, Erin Justice, has been charged with First Degree Murder, Felon in Possession of a Firearm and Felony Firearm. Prosecutors say he is currently being held by authorities in Atlanta, Ga.

A second man has been charged with being an Accessory After the Fact to a Felony.  

Authorities are still actively searching for Fox's two children, 6-year-old Kaylah Hunter and 8-month-old Kristian Justice. Fox's husband, Erin, is the father of Kristian.

In a press conference Thursday, police said Justice and the second suspect may have information that could lead them to the children.

Later Thursday afternoon police say they have found Fox's burgundy Chevy Impala in a junkyard in Taylor. Sources tell Fox 2's Taryn Asher Justice sold the vehicle and had it towed before he left town. By the time investigators arrived the car had been stripped.

Asher reports the parents of Erin Justice have been questioned by authorities, and that Erin's father drove him to the airport before his flight to Georgia.

Another search has been conducted Thursday evening in Dearborn at Ford and Telegraph Road, not far from where Fox's body was found. Asher was told some of Fox's personal property was found there.

Also Thursday night, a public vigil will be held at 7 p.m. at 7000 W. Outer Dr. in Detroit.
