blankociated Press | June 27, 2012

LOS ANGELES — Los Angeles County prosecutors say four suspected MS-13 gang members have been charged with kidnapping and murdering a 13-year-old Whittier girl in 2001.

In an indictment unsealed Wednesday, Judge George Lomeli has charged 34-year-old Jorge Palacios, 29-year-old Santos Grimaldi, 34-year-old Rogelio Contreras and 33-year-old Melvin Sandoval in the murder of a girl identified as Jacqueline P.

Sandoval is also charged with one count of lewdness on a child.

The girl’s body was found naked in Elysian Park. She had been shot twice in the head.

Her murder remained a mystery for nearly a decade until police officers uncovered new information.

Palacios and Sandoval are both awaiting trial in separate cases.

Grimaldi and Sandoval were convicted and sentenced in 2002 on a separate kidnapping.

They are all being held without bail.
