Teens suspected in Trois-Rivières triple murder back in court

The two teenagers charged with murdering three people in an apparent jealous rage two weeks ago in Trois-Rivières were back in court Tuesday morning.

The 17-year-old boys, who can't be identified, have been ordered not to communicate with each other for the duration of their trial.

They were arrested after they left the home on the morning of Feb. 11. Inside, a 17-year-old girl, her 17-year-old boyfriend, and her 22-year-old sister lay dead.

Police and neighbors has suggested one of the boys wasn't able to accept that one of the female victims was in a relationship with the male victim.

There were reports that the youths had also planned to kill police officers on their way out of the home, as well as the sisters' mother.

They return to court for a bail hearing on March 11.
