Michael Crane has been charged with the first-degree murder of Lawrence and Glenna Shapiro, as well as Bruce Gaudet.
A grand jury indicted the six suspects arrested in connection with both the murder of Paradise Valley couple Glenna and Lawrence Shapiro, as well as Bruce Gaudet's murder in Phoenix last month.

Michael Crane was charged with the first-degree murder of the Schapiros, as well as Gaudet.

That grand jury also indicted a seventh suspect with first-degree murder in Gaudet's death, but that person's name has not yet been released.

According to the county attorney's office, that seventh suspect is in custody, but his or her name is being withheld "pending service of the charges."

Between the two crime scenes, Crane now faces three counts of first-degree murder, three counts of kidnapping, six counts related to arson, two counts of burglary, one count of armed robbery, and one count of theft of a means of transportation.

The unnamed accomplice faces about half of those charges -- one count of first-degree murder, one count of kidnapping, two counts related to arson, one count of burglary, one count of armed robbery, and one count of theft of a means of transportation.

The other five people indicted -- Kelly Steward, Brittany Beinhauer, Shawn Nicloy, Danielle Rossman, and Katherine Austin -- face various charges including theft, trafficking in stolen property, and hindering prosecution in connection with both the Shapiro and Gaudet murders.

The county attorney's office says all seven are currently in custody.

Daughters: May G-d help you all with the anguish, loss, & bereavement that only daughters share with a father. While I'm sadden to hear about your father's untimely death; Bruce was a kind hearted man. And being a friend of Bill W, if he was " hanging around addicts "; there is no doubt in my mind he was trying to provide help! Again, may G-d watch over & keep you mindful of how great Bruce's spirit is- and rise above those whom are petty. As your father would & pray for those lost souls. Kev

Why even go through a trial if you know for sure they are GUILTY?America would have less murders and sexaul assaults on children if the Guilty were shot on site.Save a lot of time and money..And Lives.Who needs to waste time talkibng about it in an open Court forum? NO ONE!!

Two thumbs down to Bill Montgomery and the his staff.  They had this murder in custody in December for receiving stolen property (a motorcycle in his grandmother's living room) as well as possession of drugs and they let him go so they could "develop the case".  We it developed all right.  If I were member of their family I'd be finding me a lawyer real quick.  TERRIBLE

What on this earth could possibly have convinced this bald headed criminal super genius that he could somehow escape retribution for his completely senseless acts of violence?  Perhaps it was the support and approval ratings from his 'gang' of fools.  I suspect the combined IQ of the entire lot of them comes in second to that of an ordinary rock.  Brace yourselves for Michael Crane's next big scene, the one in which he attempts to sell himself as a complete mental train wreck incapable of differentiating right from wrong, and begging to be treated at the state mental hospital, proving that he is a complete spineless coward.  As for the 'gang' of fools, I hope that they all receive the maximum allowable sentences and remember every single day back to the very moment that they decided to destroy not only their own lives but the lives of their entire family, their acquaintances (they probably don't have any 'real' friends, after all there is no honor among thieves.), and countless other folks they'll never know.  We can only hope the world never sees or hears from this bunch of sorry wretches again.  Sorry if that seems harsh, but seriously? is it? Examples need to start being made again and here is a perfect opportunity.  Its time to put the hammer down on this valley.  There are far too many people out there who think it's their divine right to have everything they think everyone else has, and since they're either too lazy or too stupid to figure out how to get there the honest, hard working way, they go buy a gun, round up some of their buddies and go out thieving, "cause whats rightfully yours must be mine, so lets hurry up, get high and roll."

Just a guess, but I'm thinking the seventh indictment is Gaudet's alleged girlfriend in Jail in Yuma after being stopped driving his car the afternoon his body was discovered.  She led DPS on a high speed chase before the car was spiked.  There has been no info so far as to how she came into possession of the car.
