ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.- Prosecutors have charged a 15-year-old boy in the brutal murder of two other teen boys last year.


Julio Fabian Almentero is the first suspect to face murder charges. There are believed to be five other possible suspects involved.

Ahmed Lateef, 14, and Collin Romero, 15, were seen being tortured in a video posted to social media.

They disappeared in early December last year.

Autopsies showed the boys were tortured, beaten, stabbed then shot multiple times.

Police said the two were taken to the West Mesa where they were killed.

Their bodies were found buried in Sandoval County.
