Cody teens held in triple slaying in Clark

POWELL (AP) — Two teens from Cody are being held in the slayings of three members of a family in the tiny northwestern Wyoming town of Clark.

Sheriff Scott A. Steward said 19-year-old Stephen Hammer and 18-year-old Tanner Vanpelt were arrested Saturday after neighbors gave deputies a description of two men seen entering the home. The neighbors also saw two cars speeding away from the home, including one belonging to the owner, 40-year-old Ildiko Freitas.

The Powell Tribune reports Freitas and her parents, Janos and Hildegard Volgyessi, were fatally shot.

Hammer and Vanpelt are expected to be charged Tuesday, when they make their first appearance in court.
