Prelim. hearing for brothers accused in shooting death of man in Encanto

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Testimony got under way Tuesday in a preliminary hearing for two brothers accused in the 2007 shooting death of a man in the backyard of a home in San Diego's Encanto neighborhood.

Jamie Lizarraga, 20, and his 24-year-old sibling, Ramiro, are each charged with murder in the Nov. 18, 2007, death of David Coronado.

San Diego police said Coronado, 53, was found shot to death in a backyard in the 6100 block of Brooklyn Avenue.

The defendants, both U.S. citizens, were arrested in Tijuana and turned over to San Diego police last May.

At the conclusion of the preliminary hearing, which resumes on Monday afternoon, Judge Kenneth So will decide whether the prosecution presented enough evidence to warrant a trial for the Lizarraga brothers.
