The trials of two men accused of murdering 28-year-old Kingman resident Albert Orozco and leaving him in the passenger seat of a vehicle on Beverly Avenue in July 2011 have been scheduled for April.

John Langan, 32, and Russell Shields, 41, are charged with first-degree murder, evidence tampering, hindering prosecution, misconduct involving a weapon and abandonment/concealment of a dead body, according to court records.

Orozco was found dead from a single gunshot wound in a relative's car on July 18, 2011.

Shields' jury trial is set for April 9, with a final case management conference scheduled for March 20. Langan's trial begins April 16, with a final case management conference scheduled for April 1.

It took police about a month from the day the body was found to arrest Langan and Shields.

Investigators believe Orozco was killed during a dispute with the two men in the 3200 block of Apache Street.

Such a heinous crime, These men will have to answer to God for such a horrible act, but until then, I hope they rot in prison. They singlehandedly took a father from his little boy, thus turning his whole world upside down. To Alberto's family, I hope you find peace in the loss of your loved one.

I would NEVER want to see either of these men get a plea or appeal. The murder was much more horrific than the paper reported, and the body dumped just a block from his mother's house not to mention in a neighborhood whose major populous is children.
