Police have taken two men into custody for questioning in a triple slaying at their home in south Oklahoma City.

Officers found three bodies shortly after midnight Saturday at 3221 S Durland Ave. Investigators determined brothers Juan Carlos Hernandez, 25, and Jose Lucio Hernandez Jr., 26, live at the home, but were not there when officers arrived.

Police reached out to relatives to call the brothers, but neither contacted officers. The men told relatives they did not want to speak to police because they feared being arrested, according to the arrest warrant affidavits filed Monday.

Mark Myers, spokesman for the Oklahoma County sheriff's office, said the sheriff's warrant team arrested both brothers about 1:30 p.m. Tuesday after a short car chase near NW 164 and N Pennsylvania Avenue. He said they were taken into custody and will be booked into the Oklahoma County jail.

Jose Hernandez has an outstanding warrant for failure to pay child support and is on probation for felony convictions, according to the affidavit.

Juan Hernandez is said to be a flight risk because he didn't make an effort to speak with police about the death of his girlfriend, Kayla Ramirez, 19.

Both men were wanted on multiple complaints: possession of a firearm in commission of a felony, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of a sawed-off shotgun.
