The Monterey County Sheriff’s Office today announced the filing of a complaint against a second suspect in the murders of two men found shot to death exactly one year ago southeast of Watsonville.

Jordan Killens, 21, was arrested this morning on suspicion of two counts of murder in the deaths of Navneal Singh and Demetrius Isaiah Safford, according to sheriff’s Detective Martin Opseth.

Deputies took Killens into custody at his home on Normandy Road in Seaside seven days after arresting another suspect, 21-year-old Richard Singh, also of Seaside, in the double homicide, sheriff’s officials said.

A passing motorist spotted the bodies of Navneal Singh, 22, and Safford, 23, shortly after 10 p.m. on Aug. 11, 2013 on Dunbarton Road in unincorporated Monterey County about six miles southeast of Watsonville.

The bodies of the two men were lying behind a car parked on the shoulder next to Dunbarton, sheriff’s officials said.

The victims, both of Sacramento, had been killed by shots fired from a handgun, according to Opseth.

At the time of his arrest on Aug. 4, Richard Singh was already in custody at the county jail from a previous arrest related to the homicide investigation, Opseth said.

The district attorney’s office is reviewing the new complaint against Killens and last week’s against Richard Singh, Opseth said.
