More arrests in Sonoma beach murder

SANTA ROSA ” Six men are now facing charges in connection with the fatal shooting of a Santa Rosa man who was in a witness relocation program.

Sonoma County authorities say they’ve arrested a 26-year-old Suisun City man and a 29-year-old Santa Rosa man in the weekend shooting of Vutha Au.

Four other suspects are being held without bail after being arrested earlier this week.

The 24-year-old Au was found shot to death in a beach parking lot near Jenner early Sunday morning.

Authorities say Au was a witness in a case in which a group of suspected gang members kidnapped and tortured his younger brother.
