SACRAMENTO, CA - Two men arrested in the murders of two teenagers and a 20-year-old man in Rancho Cordova Feb. 13 were arraigned in Sacramento County Superior Court Wednesday.
Juan Isidoro Aucencio, 24, and Francisco Ignacio Delgado, 20, were each charged with three counts of murder in the drive-by shootings of Jamir Miller, 15; Richard Ward, 16; and Robert Corpos, 20. The three were shot in broad daylight on Malaga Way. Corpos died on the scene. Miller and Ward were pronounced dead at a local hospital.
Aucencio was also charged with using an assault weapon, an AK-47.
In addition, both suspects were charged with firing from a moving vehicle and having street gang ties.
Aucencio was represented by private counsel. The court appointed a private attorney to represent Delgado because the public defender's office said it did not have the resources to help him.
