Murder Suspects Go To Court

The two men accused of killing a mother and her two daughters will stay in jail. 19 year old Thong Le, and 27 year Ngan Tran appeared in court for the first time since they were arrested Saturday on three counts of capital murder. Investigators believe the men beat to death 11 year old Thanh Nguyen and 15 year old Thuy Nguyen and their mother, 45 year old Minh Huynh last Thursday night while robbing them.

Over the weekend, neighbors and friends began placing remembrances of the family outside of the Nguyen's home on Big Ridge road, making a memorial to them. The two suspects will remain at Jackson County's adult detention center. District Attorney Keith Miller says this case could go before a grand jury by the end of the year.
