LOS ANGELES (AP) - Twin brothers have been charged with stabbing to death a woman during a robbery as she walked home from a South Los Angeles supermarket.
Eighteen-year-olds Kenyata and Keishon Blake were charged Wednesday with murder and robbery with special circumstances. Prosecutors haven't decided whether to seek the death penalty.
Authorities say the brothers attacked 62-year-old Maria Elena Rivas three days before Christmas as she walked home after buying groceries.
Rivas was stabbed and her handbag stolen.
The brothers also are charged with robbing a woman outside of a liquor store last Friday.
They were arrested Monday and remain jailed on $1 million bail each.
Police say the brothers have a criminal history of assaults and robberies and may be linked to other attacks.
