told The Davis Enterprise in a jailhouse interview that David Froste fatally shot Rios after Moore, 17, robbed him at gunpoint of $300 worth of marijuana, and 16-year-old Rios, Moore’s friend, refused to lure him back to Froste. Moore was abducted and killed by David Froste 19 days later, Shannon said. Their bodies reportedly were burned and buried in a rural field, according to testimony. Shannon and the Frostes all have pleaded not guilty to the charges, which carry enhancements for multiple murders and murder in the commission of a kidnapping and could bring the death penalty. Whether the upcoming trial will include a fourth defendant, 18-year-old Jesus Campos of Woodland, remains to be seen. A minor at the time of the alleged crimes, Campos currently is being prosecuted in juvenile court but will undergo a transfer hearing next month to determine whether the case should be elevated to adult court. That hearing is set to begin August 21 before Judge Janet Gaard. All four defendants remain on no-bail holds at the Yolo County Jail.
