A group of gunmen burst into a home in west Juárez late Tuesday and killed a woman and two men who were relatives of a witness in the well-known homicide case of Rubí Frayre.
Ernesto Valles Maciel, 21, Cirila Maciel García, 40 and Dámaso Maciel García, 35, were killed about 10:30 p.m. Police said Valles testified in the case of Frayre.
Frayre's slaying in 2008 prompted her mother, Marisela Escobedo, to become an activist and an investigator. Protesting a judges' decision to free the confessed killer of her daughter, Escobedo was slain in December in front of the Chihuahua Governor's Palace.
The three judges who released the suspect resigned on Monday.
