Two men have been charged with the murder of an Alabama teen whose body was recovered three days after he had called his mother and told her someone was trying to kill him before the phone cut out.

Court records indicate Corey Daniel Conner, 28, Danny Lee Jarvis, 22, have been charged with Hawkins' murder and are being held on $250,000 bail each.

Authorities have yet to disclose a potential motive behind the killing, but allege Conner and Jarvis shot Hawkins to death.

Nicholas Hawkins' remains were found on Feb. 16, wrapped in a blanket and dumped in a wooded area in Quinton, Alabama, according to investigators.

Hawkins, 19, was last heard from on Feb. 13, when he called his mother. Their conversation ended abruptly, according to police, who claim the call cut out mere moments after Hawkins proclaimed, "Someone is trying to kill me." He was reported missing the next day.
