After unearthing a body from the backyard of a  Lennox home, investigators said Tuesday evening that a second body may be buried on the property.

Investigators plan to begin searching Wednesday morning for the body, which also may be buried in the backyard, said Det. Phil Martinez of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

He said detectives have been unable to locate James Stein, 53, and Gabriela Stein, both of whom live at the home in the 4800 block of West 112th Street.

On Saturday, deputies responded to the home and apprehended a woman on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon. She told investigators that bodies may have been buried on the property, according to Martinez.

The recovered body was being examined by the coroner's office.
