Heather Mack, 19, was charged alongside her boyfriend Tommy Schaefer, 21, who was also in Bali. Indonesian police said on Saturday they could face charges of premeditated murder, carrying a maximum penalty of death. The two, both from Chicago, were arrested on Wednesday on the island’s Kuta area.

The body of Sheila von Wiese-Mack, 62, was found inside the trunk of a taxi parked in front of the St Regis Bali Resort, a luxury hotel. Bali police Colonel Djoko Hari Utomo said the couple were still refusing to talk to investigators without American lawyers.

Indonesian police say the suspects’ lack of cooperation won’t hamper their investigation.
