PHOENIX - Three more people have been arrested for the murder of two Burmese refugees stabbed to death at a Phoenix apartment complex in April.
Phoenix police say 18-year-old Cassandra Devore, 17-year-old Daniela Stone and 16-year-old Michael Stone were arrested on June 19 in Mexico.
Johnny Romero, 22, and Jonathan Tineo, 17, were arrested in May.
Police say on April 28, just after midnight, officers responded to a 911 call for a stabbing at the apartment complex near 27th Avenue and Camelback Road.
Police say 40-50 people were in an apartment at the time of the incident, mourning the loss of a community member.
Three teenagers between 15 and 16 years old were walking to the apartment complex when they were confronted by five teenagers who engaged them in an altercation, according to police.
The three teenagers were able to get to the apartment and told the victims what had happened and that they were being chased by the suspects.
The victims, 54-year-old Ker Reh and 24-year-old Kay Reh stepped outside to try to calm the suspects down.
The suspects stabbed both victims, killing them.
All five suspects fled on foot.
Police say Devore, and the Stones were extradited from Mexico to Maricopa County on Monday, June 24.
