HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY, FL (WFLA) -

A Seffner man accused of killing two men in a trailer at a Seffner mobile home park over the weekend made his first appearance in a Tampa courtroom Wednesday. According to court records, Charles Foster is charged with two counts of first degree premeditated murder.

Hillsborough County Sheriff deputies found the bodies of Joshua Deas, 24, and Kenneth Simmons, 34 inside a trailer they shared at 1014 North Parsons Avenue, Lot 10 on Sunday evening. Deputies say one of the men's mothers stopped by to visit, and found them dead. 

Investigators told us that Foster stole a truck that belonged to one of the victims. According to the HCSO report, Foster also tried to get cash from the men's bank accounts.

HCSO deputies told us on Sunday, it looked like the men died from blunt force trauma to the body.
