Judge sets bail amount for defendant in Waterford double homicide

A judge on Friday set bail at $22 million for a 20-year-old man accused of murder in a shooting of two people outside a bar near Waterford earlier this year.

Alejandro Naranjo is charged with two counts of murder and one count of attempted carjacking. He also is accused of being a felon in possession of a gun.

Corrine Winter, 33, of Modesto and Jose Antonio Leon, 34, of Ceres were killed outside El Rincon bar. Naranjo is suspected of trying to steal a vehicle belonging to one of the victims.

The defendant was held without bail, until Friday morning, when Stanislaus Superior Court Judge Ricardo Córdova said $22 million was the appropriate amount for these charges. The judge scheduled Naranjo to return to court Nov. 12 for a pretrial hearing.

The shooting occurred about 11:30 p.m. April 26 outside the bar at 10012 Yosemite Blvd., about two miles west of Waterford. Winter and Leon were pronounced dead at the scene.
