    The two men, 50 and 52, are both facing murder and robbery charges. The woman, 38, has been charged with grand larceny and criminal possession of stolen property.

    Police say the three did not know Romo. The woman is accused of using Romo's credit card.

    Investigators say that surveillance video from the morning Romo was killed showed the two men leaving the building with a plastic bag. They're seen earlier entering the building without the bag.
