TIERRA AMARILLA, N.M. - The two men accused of killing three people in Dixon, New Mexico made their first court appearance Tuesday.


John Powell and Roger Gage pleaded not guilty to killing Abraham Martinez, April Browne, and Kierin Guillemin on May 30. 

Despite entering that plea, the judge ordered the accused murderers be held in jail with no bond.

It was a sigh of relief for April Browne’s family, who attended the hearing.

“It makes you feel sick to your stomach to imagine that two people can be that heartless and kill three people cold-blooded,” said Jessie Mckeon, Browne’s sister.

Powell and Gage are expected to go on trial sometime in late 2018.
