Teens Charged in Trenton Beating Death

Two teenagers have been arrested charged with the beating death of a Guatemalan man who came to New Jersey just weeks before.

Eighteen-year-old Julio Lopez-Cruz was attacked on Feb. 15 as he headed to his Trenton home with some groceries. He died a short time later.

Authorities said Thursday that they have arrested Michael Holman and Dante Martin and charged them with murder. They say the men robbed Lopez-Cruz and beat him to death.

Both men are 18 and live in Trenton.

They're being held on bail of $1 million each.
