4 face charges stemming from 2009 Hartford murder

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Police in Hartford have charged four people in connection with the shooting deaths of two victims more than four years ago.

Deputy Police Chief Brian Foley announced Saturday that three of the suspects face charges of murder and conspiracy to commit murder. That includes 31-year-old Angel Carrasquillo, 34-year-old Josue Burgos and 31-year-old Luis Quintero who were known gang members.

Carrasquillo’s girlfriend, Nicole Rodrick of Hartford, was charged with hindering prosecution.

Police arrested her and Quintero on Friday. The other suspects are in jail on unrelated charges.

Police set bond at $1 million for all, except Rodrick. Her bond is $250,000.

It was not immediately clear if the suspects have legal representation.

The victims of the October 2009 killing on Whitemore Street were 27-year-old Luis Rodriquez and 36-year-old Leida Franqui.
