TURLOCK  (AP) — Two men have been charged with murder for the slaying of a 21-year-old man in Turlock.

Both  21-year-old Pardeep Singh and 22-year-old Kultar Singh were each charged Friday with murder, making criminal threats and other charges.

Neither defendant has entered a plea; they are being held without bail.

Prosecutors say the pair killed Amritpal Sandhu, whose body was found inside a white Infiniti sedan at 1:30 a.m. Wednesday.

Sandhu had called 911 for help early Wednesday, telling a California Highway Patrol dispatcher that someone was shooting at him.

Prosecutors filed special circumstances alleging the shots were fired from one car to another vehicle with intent to kill, which makes each defendant eligible for the death penalty.
