5 arrested in connection with pair found bound, gagged in San Francisco

SAN FRANCISCO — Five people were arrested Tuesday — including two facing murder charges— for the death of a man found bound and gagged in the middle of a street in San Francisco, police said.

Maelene Lintz, 32, of San Francisco and Montrail Brackens, 21, of Oakland, were arrested at a home in suburban Hercules on suspicion of murder, said Officer Albie Esparza, a police spokesman.

Three other suspects, Tyler Miller, 19, and Heather Leach, 24, both of Hercules and Maryann Manalastas, 22, of Oakland, were also arrested Tuesday and each faces accessory to murder charges.

Lintz and Brackens are being held in jail without bail, San Francisco Sheriff's spokeswoman Susan Fahey said Tuesday. Miller is out on an unspecified bail as Leach and Manalastas are in custody on $15,000 and $20,000 bail apiece, Fahey added.

It is not known if the suspects have attorneys.
