ALLENTOWN, Pa. (AP) - Three men charged in a shooting rampage in two eastern Pennsylvania cities over the weekend have been ordered held without bail.

Twenty-year-old Robert Jourdain of Easton, 22-year-old Todd West of Elizabeth, New Jersey, and 23-year-old Kareem Mitchell of Newark, New Jersey were arraigned Wednesday by video from Lehigh County Prison.

They are charged in the shooting death Sunday of 22-year-old Kory Ketrow in Easton and attempted homicide in shots fired at a car shortly after the slaying. A magistrate told the defendants that they could face life in prison or the death penalty if convicted.

The three are also charged with homicide and conspiracy in the shooting deaths of 32-year-old Francine Ramos and 21-year-old Trevor Gray later Sunday in Allentown.

Authorities have said the shootings appeared to be random acts.
