NEW LONDON, Conn. (AP) — A Connecticut woman has testified in chilling detail about the killings of three people that led to murder charges against her and her brother.

Ruth Correa, of Hartford, was a key prosecution witness against her brother, Sergio Correa. The testimony came Tuesday in a probable cause hearing in New London to determine if there is enough evidence against Sergio Correa to proceed to trial.

Ruth Correa said she and her brother repeatedly stabbed 21-year-old Matthew Lindquist, then described how Sergio Correa beat Lindquist's parents, Janet and Kenneth Lindquist, with a baseball bat in their Griswold home before they set it on fire in December 2017.

Police said Matthew Lindquist agreed to help the Correas steal his father's guns in exchange for heroin.

The judge did not issue a ruling Tuesday.
