— A judge has scheduled a preliminary hearing to start Aug. 19 for three men accused of murder in the shooting of a 15-year-old boy in north Modesto last year.

Authorities say Jeremy Anthony Romero, 32, Santos Joseph Garcia Jr., 26, and Brian Storment, 18, are responsible for the death of Juan Velasquez, who was killed in front of a home in the 2100 block of Conant Avenue on Oct. 18.

The defendants also are charged with attempted murder in the shooting of a 23-year-old man who survived the attack.
