A California woman killed her younger sister and 3-week-old daughter out of “jealousy” and “sibling rivalry,” authorities said.
Yarelly Solorio-Rivera, 22, was arrested Wednesday in connection with the Sept. 24 shooting death of her 18-year-old sister, Yanelly Solorio-Rivera and her baby Celine. Yarelly’s boyfriend, Martin Arroyo-Morales, 26, a gang member, was also arrested, police said.
Both are charged with two counts of premeditated murder, Fresno Police Chief Paco Balderrama said Thursday.

“We have the murder weapon, a Smith & Wesson 9mm pistol, and we have a motive: jealousy and sibling rivalry,” he said. “We saw no remorse, no guilt.”
Officers were called to a home around 7:20 a.m. on the day of the killings over reports of multiple gunshots being heard inside a bedroom in the home, Fox San Francisco reported.
Balderrama said that “the scene was traumatic for all of the officers, detectives, EMS personnel and crime scene technicians who responded to the scene.”
When they arrived, the police found Yanelly Solorio-Rivera and the boy dead. Solorio-Rivera was shot multiple times.
Investigators had strong suspicions from the start but did not have enough evidence to make an arrest, the chief said.

“This was an intricate and well-planned murder,” Balderrama said.
