Two people are charged with murdering a man whose body was found behind a Brooklyn Home Depot, police said.

Elizabeth Quintanilla, 34, and Edgar Garcia, 28, were busted Tuesday, for the killing of Roman Ramirez on July 28, cops said.

The pair allegedly left the 26-year-old for dead with a gash in his head and a puncture wound in his left shoulder behind the store on Cropsey Ave. near Bay 53rd St. in Gravesend.

A man spotted Ramirez’s body while on an afternoon walk through nearby Calvert Vaux Park, police said.

Ramirez was known by several nicknames, including “Guatemala” and “El Chapin,” regulars at the park told the Daily News. He worked at a restaurant, often slept in the park, where he played soccer, according to Albert Santini, 55, who knew Ramirez from the greenspace.
