ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — The news gave Amanda Romero a sense of relief. But one undercut with sadness.
“They grew up together and were best friends till the end,” she said of her son, Collin Romero, 15, and Ahmed Lateef, 14. “In a weird way I’m thankful neither of them died alone.”
On Thursday, a 2nd Judicial District grand jury indicted four individuals police have identified as key players in the Dec. 16 double slaying of Romero and Lateef.
“The battle is far from over, but these charges are a big step forward toward ensuring that these suspects know that we are capable of obtaining justice,” Romero told the Journal.
