Teens to be Tried Separately in Double Murder Case

LAS VEGAS -- A judge has ruled that two teens charged with murder in the deaths of two people at a mobile home near Las Vegas will stand trial separately.

Timothy Chester and Victor Veliz, both 18, have pleaded not guilty to two charges each of murder in the deaths of Chester's parents. The teens could face the death penalty if convicted.

The couple was found dead in their home in Sept. 2009.
