BERNALILLO, N.M. (AP) - Authorities say two of the three bodies found in a shallow grave near the San Felipe Casino have been identified.

Sandoval County Sheriff’s officials say the homicide victims are 32-year-old John Santistevan and 48-year-old Geraldine Sena.

They say the third body is likely that of 25-year-old Samuel Sena, but hasn’t been positively identified as of Thursday.

The three Albuquerque residents were reported missing March 17 by family members.

Their bodies were found May 31, buried in a remote area about 12 miles southeast of the casino.

Sheriff’s deputies found an abandoned, blood-soaked pickup truck with numerous bullet holes about seven miles east of the casino on Feb. 29.

Authorities say three suspects have been arrested in the homicide case, but their names won’t be released until they’re formally charged.
