CODY — Two teenagers charged in the shooting deaths of a woman and her parents near the Wyoming-Montana border are due to be arraigned in Park County District Court on May 22.

Court documents filed Wednesday said Stephen Hammer and Tanner Vanpelt, both 19, will appear before Judge Steven Cranfill in Cody to enter pleas. They are represented by attorneys from the Public Defender's Office.

Prosecutors charge that the teens shot and killed Ildiko Freitas and her parents, Janos and Hildegard Volgyesi, at a residence in the small community of Clark, Wyo., on March 2.

The teenagers allegedly wanted Freitas' Audi sport-utility vehicle to drive to Denver to sell stolen handguns. Police say the teenagers shot and killed Freitas and her parents after Freitas argued against giving them her vehicle.
