4 now in custody in Yakima Canyon slayings

The Associated Press

Four suspects are now in custody in the slayings of two men whose bodies were found in the Yakima River Canyon.

Yakima Herald-Republic reports ( http://bit.ly/XjuPef) Marco Gallegos and Heriberto Villa were arrested Friday in Yakima and booked into the Yakima County jail on suspicion of first-degree murder and kidnapping.

The Yakima County sheriff's office believes they had a role in the shooting deaths of 36-year-old Michael Kevin Eby and 35-year-old Ryan Michael Pederson whose bodies were found Dec. 21 in a car.

Two other men, Troy Whalen and Jose Alfonso Pineda, were arrested last week in the case.
