Suspects Devin Malik Cunningham, 20, left, and Christopher Brian Cortez, 19, both of Wilkes-Barre, Pa., and two teenage girls face homicide and other charges in connection with the death of a 71-year-old man, authorities say.
Two teenage girls and two adult men are facing homicide and other charges in connection with the brutal beating and stabbing death of the 71-year-old grandfather of one of the girls, authorities said.
The girls, ages 16 and 17, and the men, ages 19 and 20, committed the crime so they could take $30,000 in cash that the elderly man kept in a safe in the basement of his Edwardsville, Pa., home, authorities said.
