According to the San Luis Obispo District Attorney’s Office, Judge Craig van Rooyen there was "sufficient evidence" presented at the preliminary hearing to try Paul, 44, and Ruben, 80. San Luis Obispo District Attorney Dan Dow said in a statement, "We continue to support the family of Kristin Smart as we work toward justice."
According to the San Luis Obispo Tribune, a detective with the Sheriff’s Office reportedly obtained "biological evidence that makes them believe the victim was buried underneath [Ruben Flores’] deck at one time."
The Tribune reports the detective wrote in a report there was "damning evidence that a body had been buried in that location and then recently moved."
Paul and Ruben Flores will be arraigned October 20 in San Luis Obispo Superior Court.
