    The suspects, ages 14 and 17, will stay locked up until their next hearing on Jan. 10, when prosecutors will determine whether to charge them as adults.

    "We will make a filing decision regarding what charges should be filed and whether they should be filed in juvenile or adult court,” prosecutor Maria Schneider said.

    The slaying victim was identified as 32-year-old Gregory Hyppolite.
