The Modesto Bee ( http://bit.ly/V5JiPs) says detectives on Tuesday surprised 43-year-old Robert Palomino and 27-year-old Juan Jose Nila as they were leaving a Stanislaus County courtroom for an unrelated weapons case.
They were handcuffed and booked for investigation of murder for the three killings in a southeast Modesto home last March.
Investigators say 16-year-old David Siebels, 19-year-old Alyxandra Tellez and 31-year-old Edward Joseph Reinig were shot to death.
After the courthouse arrests, four others already in jail on different charges were booked for investigation of murder. They are 31-year-old Armando Osegueda, 36-year-old Jose Osegueda Jr., 31-year-old Richard Garcia and 23-year-old Joseph Luis Jauriqui.
