Judge orders trial in killing of 3-year-old boy

By Andy Furillo

A judge ordered a trial for three defendants accused of murder in last year's July 4 shooting death of 3-year-old Jorge Azios IIIv on Loucreta Drive, but he didn't exactly send the case out Friday with a ringing endorsement.

Instead, Sacramento Superior Court Judge Jack Sapunor said it was pretty clear to him that questions remain "not resolved" about the credibility of the key witness against defendants Gabriel Quintero, now 21, Eric Minjares, 19, and Marcus Weber, 18.

At the conclusion of the preliminary hearing, the defense lawyers for the three suggested they will launch an all-out attack on the truthfulness of the witness, identified in court as another young man from unincorporated southeast Sacramento, Anthony Canales, whom they think would make a better suspect than any of their clients.
