Two suspected members of the MS-13 gang have been charged with allegedly murdering a Houston 15-year-old girl as part of a “Satanic” ritual, PEOPLE confirms.

Miguel Angel Alvarez-Flores, 22, and Diego Alexander Hernandez-Rivera, 18, were charged with murder Wednesday, a Harris County Clerk official tells PEOPLE. The victim has not been publicly identified.

The pair have also been charged in the kidnapping of another girl, 14, who alleged she was held against her will and raped by the gang members for 14 days, according to Fox News.

Police allege the fatal victim, a 14-year-old, and a 16-year-old were all held hostage in the same Houston apartment. Alvarez-Flores and Hernandez-Rivera were arrested Feb. 27 after the apartment was raided, Sgt. Chris Sturdivant of the Houston Police Department said at a Friday press conference.

On Wednesday, Alvarez-Flores and Hernandez-Rivera appeared in a Harris County courtroom on kidnapping and murder charges. During the hearing, Harris County prosecutors detailed an eye-witness account given by the 14-year-old, who police said escaped from the apartment and was reunited with her parents, KPRC reports.

According to prosecutors, the 14-year-old alleged that while being held at the apartment on Glenmont Road, gang members raped her and forced her to drink alcohol and take drugs, KPRC reports.

The girl also said that during her time at the apartment, she met another girl who investigators believe was the fatal victim.
