Both could face a death sentence, a possible outcome from capital murder charges.

Both 35-year-old Jereme Lee Nelson and 31-year-old Myrta Rangel were arrested Jan. 12 near Rosarito, Mexico, by Mexican authorities on warrants connected to the murders. Both have signed a waiver of extradition and were detained San Diego, California.

According to the Kansas Bureau of Investigation, Travis Street, 33, of Moundridge; Angela May Graevs, 37, of Moundridge; and Richard Prouty, 52, of Newton were found dead in a driveway in the 8600 block of Spring Lake Road near Alta Mills, between Hesston and Moundridge, on Oct. 30, 2016.

At 5:30 p.m. that day, a motorist called 911 and said she had been waved down by a maroon vehicle. She told dispatchers she had been told there were two bodies in the driveway of a home in the 8600 block of N. Spring Lake Road.

According to the sheriff's department, investigators found three bodies in the driveway and an 18-month-old-baby in the house. Then Sheriff T. Walton said that the deaths had happened "earlier in the day," estimating a time of death of about 11 a.m.

He said he believed the shootings took place outside of the house. The child's parents were among the victims of the shooting. The child was taken to other family for care.

Nelson and Rangel have been convicted of drug offenses in the past — Rangel was convicted of a possession of opiates charge in Sedgwick County in 2006. While in the Topeka Correctional Facility, she was reported for disruptive behavior. According to a report from the Kansas Department of Corrections, Nelson has prior convictions for meth, firearms, burglary, and theft. He is also listed as an absconder.
