3 more suspects arrested in Burmese refugee deaths

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX (AP) - Authorities say three more suspects in the stabbing deaths of two Burmese refugees at a memorial service in Phoenix two months ago now are in custody.

Phoenix police announced Wednesday that 18-year-old Cassandra Devore along with a 17-year-old girl and 15-year-old boy were arrested last week in Mexico.

All three were extradited to Maricopa County on Monday.

Police say 22-year-old Johnny Romero and a 17-year-old boy previously were arrested in connection with the April 28 stabbing deaths of 53-year-old Ker Reh and 24-year-old Kay Reh.

Police say the two victims weren't related. They were stabbed at Phoenix apartment complex after their prayer services were interrupted by arguing teens.

The site was where dozens of people from Burma - also known as Myanmar - were gathering to mourn a person's death.

    It appears the subway bedbug problem we've been reporting is getting worse. Commuters already have to contend with sweltering platforms, scurrying rats and packed train cars, and now there's another transit woe: fear of bedbugs.
