A judge set $5 million bail for each of the teens who are accused of brutally murdering two homeless Navajo men in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Alez Rios, 18, Nathaniel Carrillo, 16, and Gilbert Tafoya, 15, face open charges of murder, tampering with evidence, three counts aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and robbery. According to The Albuquerque Journal, Carrillo and Tafoya lived in a house near the lot where the two men were attacked on Friday night.

Authorities haven't publicly identified the victims but the Journal said one of them was named Allison Gorman. His driver's license was found in the home of Carrillo and Tafoya, the paper reported.

A third Navajo man, Jerome Eskeets, also was attacked by the teens. He said his brother was one of those who was killed but a name wasn't reported by local television stations.

"My brother, he didn't deserve that at all. He was a good. He was a good man," Eskeets told KOAT-TV.

A fourth Navajo man, Emerson Roanhorse, said he knew the two victims. He witnessed part of the attack before he escaped to safety.

The victim's bodies were discovered on Saturday morning. They were so badly beaten that authorities are still working on identifying them.
