EL PASO (KTSM) — Police arrested three people for the murder of a 22-year-old man in Central El Paso.
Sonia Bautista, 21, Ricardo Macias, 21, and Brianna Garay, 18, are charged with capital murder in the death of Jose Castanon.
Police said the three suspects got into an argument with Castanon over ecstasy pills at a home on Hamilton near Alabama Friday afternoon. They allegedly worked together to kill him, but it’s unclear how he died. Police said they also stole money and other illegal drugs from the victim.
This is the fifth murder in El Paso this year.
