HEMET (CNS) – Three women were killed inside a Hemet residence, and the two people believed to be the killers were behind bars today.

Wendy Lopez-Araiza, 46, her daughter, 21-year-old Genesis Lopez-Araiza, and their housemate, 18-year-old Trinity Clyde, were killed Wednesday in the 1400 block of Rabbit Peak Way, near Rexford Drive, according to the Hemet Police Department.
