TEXAS CITY, Texas - Two people were arrested Wednesday south of San Antonio in connection to a Texas City woman's death, officials said.

Investigators took 19-year-old Cory McCray and a 17-year-old believed to be Cindy Esquivel in Atascosa County Wednesday evening. 

Last week, police said they found the body of 33-year-old Lucy Bertrand in her home and that she had been stabbed and beaten to death.

Investigators already had one suspect in custody, 37-year-old Amy Medina. She is currently charged with murder and is being held on a $250,000 bond. 

According to court documents, Medina was the mastermind behind a robbery at Bertrand's home. Court documents say that Medina suspected Betrand of stealing money from her bank account. 

Documents also say McCray beat Bertrand with a pistol and Esquivel allegedly stabbed her. Both will be held on a $250,000 bond when booked in the Galveston County Jail.
