Man accused of killing two men in Madera

FRESNO, Calif.

Investigators have not released a motive or what the connection is between the victims. Residents say several farm workers lived in the house.

Police escorted them to the police station for questioning and were later released. Saturday, no one was at the house but neighbors say they were shocked by what's happened.

"I'm very surprised that something so gruesome like that could happen right across the street where we live," Maria Lopez said.

"For a long time nothing happened here so this is new for all the neighbors," Solomon Nunez said.

Martinez Ramirez is charged with two counts of murder and is being held on a $2 million bail.
