A 25-year-old cold case heated up last week and three people have now been arrested for two mid-'90s murders in Long Branch, New Jersey.

Ana Mejia, 24, was found dead inside her Prospect Avenue apartment in December 1994. her throat slashed, more than 20 stab wounds to her body and cocaine smeared across her face and inside her nose, according to the Asbury Park Press.

Five months later, in May 1995, her brother-in-law, Nicholas Connors, was shot and killed inside his Van Dyke Place home, found by his wife, Delores Connors, Mejia’s sister, when she got home from work that morning.

Delores Connors, her son Ted and a third man, Jose Carrero, were all arrested in connection to the murders, officials said.
