Death Penalty Sought Against Brothers In Texas Triple Slaying

SAN ANTONIO (January 23, 2013)--San Antonio brothers Conrad Ochoa, 32, and Baron Ochoa, 37, who were already facing sexual exploitation counts, have been charged in the stabbing deaths of Conrad Baron’s 10-year-old daughter, the girl's mother and a friend.

Prosecutors say the bodies were found in 2011 after authorities responded to a house fire a few days before the brothers faced court appearances related to alleged abuse of the girl.

A grand jury Tuesday indicted the brothers on capital murder counts.

Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty.

The victims were identified as Samvastion "Sammie" Ochoa, her mother Rebecca "Veggie" Gonzales, 29, and their roommate Pamela Wenske, 41.

Conrad Baron was previously charged with possession of child pornography and his brother was charged with continuous sexual abuse of a child.
