It was Rachelle Bergeronís passion for defending the marginalized that took her thousands of miles across the globe to the tiny Pacific island of Yap, where she worked as its only prosecutor.

Paradoxically, that passion may also be what led to her untimely death. On Oct. 14, the Wisconsin native, 33, was killed as she was out on a run with her dog. This week, authorities in the Federated States of Micronesia announced they have charged two suspects in her the killing. The grisly incident has rattled the community of 12,000 people, where crime rates are low and only police can carry guns.

Police arrested Anthony Teteeth and Frances Buchun and charged them with several counts, including murder, according to the Guam Daily Post. The men had been plotting the killing for over a month, according to local law enforcement officials, who are collaborating with the FBI.

Some speculated that the alleged killers had probably targeted Bergeron because of her work, though a criminal complaint released Thursday by police does not identify a possible motive.
