17-year-old Shadi Adi Najjar and 18-year-old Artem S. Ziberov were found shot to death inside of a car on June 5th. The teens were expected to graduate from Northwest High School in Germantown the following day.

FOX 5's Paul Wagner reported that Najjar may have stolen drugs and an iPad from the girlfriend of one of his murderers.

Police had already arrested and charged 24-year-old Edgar Garcia-Gaona, 19-year-old Roger Garcia and 25-year-old Jose Ovilson Canales-Yanez in connection in the murders.

Galicia is expected in court later today.
