HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. (AP) - A suspect in the killings of two men 23 years ago is expected in a Southern California courtroom.

New evidence prompted Huntington Beach police to reopen the 1994 murder case last year. On April 27 authorities arrested Lamberto Ricci Castillo at his home in Alamosa, Colorado.

The 64-year-old is suspected of fatally shooting Chen “Cosmo” Blanchard and Kenny Sommer, both 23, as they were socializing on a street corner.

The Orange County Register reports (https://bit.ly/2pOYf9O ) Castillo is scheduled to be arraigned Monday on two felony counts of murder. It wasn’t immediately known if he has an attorney.

If convicted he could face life in prison.
