A Warren County man is under arrest and charged with helping a man accused of killing two people evade police.

34-year-old Benjamin Luczywek is the third person charged by state police with reportedly helping Cody Potthoff by furnishing him with clothing and getting rid of a stolen car.

Potthoff then reportedly hid the Jeep in Warren County.
