Guam - A preliminary hearing scheduled for Derrick Cruz, Cal-Jerome Delorie, Darren Cruz, Zared Lizama, and Shayne Terlaje was cancelled for this afternoon as a Superior Court grand jury handed down an indictment today.  The five are accused of having a role in the murder of Vincent Bernardo Peredo. 

According to the magistrate's complaint, the teenagers admitted to police that they broke into Peredo's home on March 8 with the intention to steal large quantities of marijuana.

They admitted to brutally beating and tying up Peredo, who later died and stealing marijuana.  Derrick Cruz and Delorie remain behind bars on $500,000 cash bail each at the Hagatna Detention Facility while Darren Cruz, Lizama and Terlaje remain behind bars at the Department of Youth Affairs on $500,000 cash bail each. 

An arraignment hearing is scheduled March 31 before Judge Alberto Tolentino.
