ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - The youngest of six teenagers accused in the shooting death of an Albuquerque man during a crime spree last month made their first appearance in court Monday.

Albuquerque television station KRQE reports (https://bit.ly/1IWpO82) that a judge set bond for the two 14-year-old suspects at $250,000 cash. The same bond was set for the other teens during a hearing last week.

The Associated Press is not identifying the suspects because of their ages.

One of the teens is accused of gunning down 60-year-old Steve Gerecke while police say the group burglarized cars and homes.

Police found Gerecke dead in his driveway the night of June 26.

The victim’s wife, Vinnie Gerecke, was in court Monday. She told the judge that she believes she would be dead if her husband had not intervened.
