2 more arrested in double slaying at San Antonio apartment, bodies of man, woman dumped


SAN ANTONIO — Two more suspects have been arrested in the investigation of a man and a woman slain at a San Antonio apartment.

Medina County jail records show John Mendoza Jr. and Kristopher Sanchez were being held Wednesday on murder charges, with bond of $1 million each. Both were captured Tuesday night in San Antonio.

Loribeth Martinez remains jailed on a murder charge. Sheriff Randy Brown says investigators believe the victims were killed June 7 at the Martinez home over drugs or gang issues.

The three suspects were wanted in the death of Traci Lemley. Her burned body was discovered June 8 in a field in Castroville. Jeremy Carrico's body was found June 17 in a container near Robstown.

Jail records don't list attorneys for Mendoza or Sanchez to speak for them.
