The three suspects face charges of aggravated homicide for the deaths of Juan Portillo and Gloria Rogel. They also face attempted aggravated homicide charges for the wounding of Roberto Hernandez and Aquiles Ayala.
The court rejected the defense's request for "total confidentiality" of the investigation, noting that the case has become public and parties need to know about the process.
On Jan. 31, the victims were attacked and killed after they participated in an election campaign act carried out by the FMLN. Police arrested the suspects the same day and confiscated a shotgun and a 9-millimetres pistol.
