Darcy, Antelope

A: Twin brothers Roman and Ruslan Glukhoy, 21, remain in Placer County Jail awaiting trial on charges of murder in the death of Jose Luis Bariga-Tovar, 35, and his 14-year-old daughter, Anahi.

Their next court date is set for June 21, according Placer County Jail inmate information available online. The brothers, who have pleaded not guilty to the charges, are being held without bail.

The brothers were being pursued by law enforcement officers on April 2, 2014, when they allegedly crashed a stolen pickup into Bariga-Tovar’s Kia on westbound Antelope Road and Antelope North Road.

According to stories in The Sacramento Bee, the chase began when the Glukhoys and a friend allegedly sped away in a BMW following a car burglary in Auburn. After the BMW crashed in Loomis, the friend bailed out. The Glukhoys then allegedly stole a Ford F-150 pickup and returned to Interstate 80, with Placer County sheriff’s deputies in pursuit. The pickup, which authorities said at times reached speeds of more than 100 mph, exited at Antelope Road and struck the Kia as Bariga-Tovar was turning onto North Antelope Road.
