Judge orders pair to stand trial in triple gang killing

Two reputed street gang members were ordered today to stand trial for murder in last year's shooting deaths of three bicyclists in Rancho Cordova.

Saul Isidro-Aucencio, 25, and Francisco Ignacio Delgado, 21, were held over by Sacramento Superior Court Judge Michael A. Savage for the Feb. 13, 2011, killings of Robert Corpos, 20, Richard Ward, 16, and Jamir Miller, 15.

The judge scheduled their trial for April 10.

According to testimony at a two-day preliminary hearing, the two defendants were looking to retaliate against four men who had attacked one of them when they came across the three bicyclists who had nothing to do with the previous assault. Isidro-Aucencio was identified in the preliminary hearing as the gunman.

A Sacramento sheriff's detective testified today that Corpos was a validated gang member who was carrying a gun and was trying to pull it out to defend himself when he was shot and killed. The detective, Kevin Steed, said the other two victims were alleged associates of a street gang.
