Authorities in Austin, Texas, say they're glad to have finally made arrests in an eight-year-old murder case.
Officials in Texas and West Virginia have arrested four men accused of shooting four teen-age girls to death in an apparent robbery at a yogurt shop in 1991. The store was then set on fire.
The four suspects were teen-agers at the time of the killings, and three of them attended the same high school in Austin. But none of them went to school with the victims.
Affidavits filed with the arrest warrants say two of the suspects told police that they and the others planned the robbery at the store earlier on the night of the killings. The affidavits
say they went into the shop and unlocked the back door, returned later, took money from the store, then killed the girls.
