MONTGOMERY VILLAGE, Md. (AP) — Three men arrested in connection to the death of two teens found slain inside a car the night before they were set to graduate high school have been indicted on murder charges by a grand jury in Maryland.
Jose Canales-Yanez, Edgar Garcia-Goana and Roger Garcia were indicted on murder, robbery and weapons charges Thursday in Montgomery County Circuit Court. The three men were charged June 17 with murder and conspiracy, and held without bond.
The charges stem from the fatal shooting of 17-year-old Shadi Najjar and 18-year-old Artem Ziberov. Authorities say the teens, both Northwest High School seniors, drove to a location expecting to meet someone who wanted to buy a commencement ticket. Instead, authorities say the three men fired more than 30 rounds at them.
