PHILIPSBURG–The pro-forma hearing in the “Mars” investigation involving the murders of S. Sarante-Diaz and E. Rosario took place in the Court of First Instance on Thursday.

  Suspects K.K.K.S. and T.J.F. appeared in court to hear what they are being accused of. Escaped convict Kathron “Kuchi” Fortune is also a suspect in the case, but has not yet been recaptured, according to the Prosecutor.
