<p>The prosecutor’s office stated in a statement on Friday that the Colombian citizens were charged during their arraignment on Thursday.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>The accusations included, among other things, reports on the evidence, eyewitness testimony, the autopsy process, ballistic data, and security camera films.</p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p>The six suspects were detained on Wednesday at their residences in two neighborhoods of Quito after the violent assault that murdered Villavicencio, according to the Xinhua news agency. Weapons and three grenades were also discovered there.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>The agency said that Villavicencio “was shot from a long distance, while the ballistic report determined that the casings coincide with one of the rifles found in the raids,” according to the autopsy procedure.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>The prosecution’s probe will go for 30 days, it said, adding that a fingerprint was discovered on a motorbike the defendants abandoned.</p>
