A Brooklyn man has been charged with the murder of two men found dead in a Queens brush fire.

According to authorities, Rogelio Rodriguez was arrested Tuesday.

He’s expected to be arraigned Wednesday.

Authorities say the bodies of Gary Lopez and Rudolph Superville were found last week, after firefighters put out a blaze in Howard Beach.

They say the men were beaten, stabbed and shot. Investigators are still searching for three other suspects.
