BRIGHTON, Colo. (AP) - A judge has ordered two men to stand trial in the shooting deaths of three people in Adams County.

The Adams County District Attorney’s Office says Judge Thomas Ensor made his ruling Friday after a preliminary hearing for 30-year-old Furman Leyba and 41-year-old Gabriel Flores.

Flores, the alleged gunman, has been charged with three counts of first-degree murder. Leyba is charged with three counts of felony murder for allegedly joining Flores and helping rob two of the victims and another person of money, firearms, drugs and credit cards.

Three men were found shot to death in a home Dec. 10 after a distraught woman called 911 to report a disturbance. Killed were 18-year-old Johnny Angel Gutierrez, 37-year-old Jason Albert Quizada and 17-year-old Jayson Antonio Figueroa.
