ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Police in Albuquerque, New Mexico, are checking open cases involving crimes against transients to see whether they're related to the killings of two homeless men over the weekend.

Three teenagers are accused of fatally beating the two homeless men, and a criminal complaint filed in the case says one of the teens told police that the teens had attacked more than 50 people in the last several months.

The criminal complaint accuses an 18-year-old with murder, conspiracy and other crimes, and police say they expect the other teens also be will be accused of murder as adults. They're 15 and 16 years old.

The victims were left unrecognizable when they were battered with cinder blocks, kicked and beaten.
