SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Two men suspected in crimes across several Western states, including a deadly carjacking in Colorado, have been charged in an alleged bank robbery in Park City, Utah.

Federal prosecutors say in charges filed Monday that 30-year-old Matthew Anthony Fanelli pulled a gun on a bank teller Friday and stole $2,000 before fleeing with 31-year-old Jose Lopez-Jovel. Prosecutors accuse 18-year-old Cynthia Sena of casing out the bank lobby under the guise of looking for a lost purse.

The three are charged with robbery and using a weapon during a crime.

It was not immediately known Tuesday if Lopez-Jovel, who is from El Salvador, and Fanelli and Sena, of New Mexico, had attorneys.

Fanelli is suspected of killing 58-year-old David Rosenthal in Denver. U.S. Attorney’s Office spokeswoman Melodie Rydalch says Fanelli is suspected of being in the United States illegally.
