JUPITER, Fla. (AP) - Three men accused of robbing and beating an 18-year-old Florida man to death will remain behind bars.
The Palm Beach Post (https://pbpo.st/1JuYGxt) reports 19-year-old Austin Taggart, 18-year-old Jesse Harris and 19-year-old David Harris were arrested Saturday on murder charges. The three men are accused of robbing and killing 18-year-old Onesimo Marcelino Lopez-Ramos last week in Jupiter.
Officials say the cause of death was blunt force trauma.
Taggart and Jesse Harris faced a judge Sunday and were charged with homicide and robbery. David Harris refused to leave his cell to hear charges against him.
No bail has been set for the men.
Police say they may pursue the case as a hate crime because Lopez-Ramos was targeted because of his ethnicity.
It is unclear whether the men have layers.
