Suspects in slaying of USC students to be arraigned today
In a court appearance last month, attorneys for Javier Bolden, 19, and Bryan Barnes, 20, had asked the judge for more time to review the case. They were arrested in May and charged with first-degree murder in the killings of two electrical engineering students from China: Ming Qu and Ying Wu, both 23.
Bolden and Barnes also face one count each of attempted murder in a separate incident last year, according to the L.A. County district attorney's office, and Bolden is charged with an additional count of attempted murder and one count of assault stemming from a February incident.
