Alleged MS-13 members face new indictment in teens’ deaths

ALEXANDRIA, Va. — A federal grand jury has issued an updated indictment against 11 alleged MS-13 gang members for the kidnappings and killings of two northern Virginia teenagers in 2016.

Prosecutors say the defendants could face the death penalty.

The indictment issued Thursday alleges that a high-ranking MS-13 member from El Salvador, Edenilson Misael Alfaro, authorized other gang members to lure, kidnap, and kill 17-year-old Edvin Escobar Mendez of Falls Church and 14-year-old Sergio Arita Triminio of Alexandria.

The victims’ bodies were found buried in Holmes Run Park in Falls Church in March 2017.

According to prosecutors, Mendez was murdered because the defendants suspected he was a member of a rival gang intending to infiltrate MS-13.
