Teen girls ar­rested in con­nec­tion to Cal­i­for­nia killing

Porterville Recorder - - NEWS -

Au­thor­i­ties say two girls ages 14 and 15 were ar­rested in Ari­zona in con­nec­tion with the killing of a man found shot in South­ern Cal­i­for­nia.

The San Bernardino County Sher­iff's Depart­ment says deputies look­ing for a 14-year-old run­away on Fri­day found 24-year-old Reuben Franco dead at a home in Yucaipa, Cal­i­for­nia.

De­tec­tives de­ter­mined a 15-year-old girl was miss­ing from the home and be­lieved to be with the 14-year-old. Franco's car was also gone.

Po­lice in Buck­eye, Ari­zona, de­tained the girls af­ter they crashed the car into a pump at a gas sta­tion. They were re­turned to Cal­i­for­nia and could each face a mur­der charge.

Of­fi­cials say both girls are res­i­dents of Yucaipa.

No other de­tails, such as a mo­tive for the shoot­ing, were im­me­di­ately re­leased.
