Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

The two male suspects arrested for the Feb. 16 shooting on Cheryl Drive that claimed the lives of two children received court appointed attorneys in the 347th District Court Monday.

Brendon Gaytan, 26, and Cruz Salazar, 22, were both arrested at an apartment in the 800 block of Indiana Avenue early Friday morning and charged with capital murder.

Gaytan told the court that he had hired Attorney Ron Baroso. However, Baroso's office said he has not been retained by Gaytan, so instead, the court appointed Attorney Rick Rogers to defend Gaytan.

Salazar told the court that he plans to hire an attorney himself, but the court appointed him Attorney Jim Lawrence.
