Several of the suspects are due in court this afternoon.
Juan Manuel Menchaca and Maribel Menchaca have been charged with Roberto's murder even though it was Juan that pulled the trigger. Maribel allegedly shoved the teenage victim and yanked a gold chain from his neck.
Most of the other charges are because the people involved knew about the robbery and/or shooting, they hid suspects, and allegedly lied or were not forthcoming to the police.
