Christine Ferreira, 28, of Hyannis was killed at the Route 6 eastbound rest stop between Exits 6 and 7 in September of 2015.

BARNSTABLE – Two of the three suspects charged in the September murder of Christine Ferreira will be back in court Friday.

A pretrial conference is scheduled for Denzel Chisholm, 25, of West Yarmouth, and his 26-year-old sister Shannelle Chisholm, of Mashpee.

Tyrone Gomes, 30, of Hyannis had a pretrial conference scheduled earlier in the week.

The three are facing first degree murder charges and are accused of luring Ferreira to a rest area on Route 6 eastbound in Barnstable and then killing her.

Prosecutors believe Denzel Chisholm orchestrated Ferreira’s murder in retaliation for her testimony against a member of the Nauti-Block street gang in 2011, a drug trafficking organization officials say Chisholm ran.
