Myron Givan was arrested on December 13 in Colorado for his suspected involvement in the murder of a father and son at a Lamont gas station in October.

Givan's charges include murder in the first degree, robbery in the second degree, assault with a deadly weapon, conspiracy to commit a crime and participation in a street gang.

Darnell Hammond and Jim Langston will be in court today, December 28, for their suspected involvement in the murder of Heriberto Acevez and his son Juan.

The two were due in court on December 9, but the hearing was delayed as the District Attorney's Office was figuring out if they were going to seek the death penalty. Investigators say Hammond and Langston shot and killed the men at a Lamont gas station in October.
