Both are charged with murder and discharging a firearm into an occupied vehicle, according to Sacramento Superior Court online records. Their trial is scheduled for April 9, 2014.

Sacramento County sheriff's deputies responded about 6:30 p.m. Jan. 17 to reports of shots fired and found Chavez unresponsive in the driver's seat of a Chevrolet Suburban. The sport utility vehicle was stopped in the middle of the roadway, facing north on Westporter Drive at Lilibet Avenue. A female passenger in the SUV at the time of the shooting was not injured.
