By  | 

POCATELLO, Idaho (AP) - Recently unsealed court documents and statements by prosecutors say two California teenagers killed an 87-year-old eastern Idaho woman during a robbery inside her Pocatello home.

The Idaho State Journal reports in a story on Friday that 18-year-old Dustin Garrett Alfaro and a 17-year-old boy, both from Marysville, are each facing a first-degree murder charge.

Police say Arlyne Koehler was stabbed to death inside her home on March 19. Police say the teens didn't know Koehler, who lived alone, and randomly targeted her.

Sixth District Court Judge Aaron Thompson unsealed the court documents following a challenge by the Idaho State Journal and a court hearing on May 29.

Alfaro is being held in the Bannock County Jail, and the juvenile in the 6th District Juvenile Detention Center in Pocatello. Each has a $1 million bond.
