Albuquerque Police have arrested the three youths after being accused of murdering two homeless men sleeping in a field.

18-year-old Alex Rios, 16-year-old Nathaniel Carrillo, and 15-year-old Gilbert Tafoya, have been charged in the murder of the two men, who were sleeping in a vacant lot located on 60th Street.

During questioning, the teens admitted to killing the two men and wounding another after returning from a party on Friday night.

They used bricks, sticks and an iron bar to beat the victims. The men were beaten beyond recognition, and they have not yet been identified.

The teens also admitted that they had been attacking random homeless people throughout the city over the years, and had attacked at least 50 people just in the last couple of months.

All three teens were jailed, and bail was set at $5 million each.
