The bodies were found early Wednesday mornings when firefighters responded to a fire at Fero’s Bar & Grill,  according to the Denver Police Department.

Investigators arrested Dexter Lewis, 22, Joseph Hill, 27, and Lynell Hill, 24, Wednesday night, Denver police announced Thursday morning.

“It appears the motive of this crime was a robbery,” said Ron Saunier, Denver Police Department’s major crimes unit commander. “The arson was set to try to cover up the crime.”

The victims have been identified as: Young Suk Fero, the owner of the business; Daria M. Pohl, 22, of Denver; Kellene Fallon, 45, of Denver; Ross Richter, 29; and Tereasa Beesley, 45, of Denver.

Saunier said all three suspects will face five counts of first-degree murder, five counts of felony murder, aggravated robbery and arson. He said he does not believe that anyone who had been in the bar when the robbery began managed to escape. All customers and employees were killed.

Saunier said he does not know which of the victims were employees and which were customers.
