            Three defendants have been ordered to stand trial in Placer County for a pair of incidents in which motorists were followed home from a Sacramento nightclub and were targeted for carjacking or robbery.

            In one case, a victim was robbed, carjacked and kidnapped at gunpoint, according to the Placer County District Attorney’s Office. In the other, a victim stopped his vehicle but drove away as he was fired upon by a gunman on a Rocklin street, the office said. No one was injured in the two incidents.

            Held to answer on charges of conspiracy, robbery, kidnapping and  carjacking were Felipe Ortega, 26, Omar Lozano Villicana, 19, and Mirna Corral, 35, all of Sacramento. In addition, Ortega was held to answer on a charge of possession of a firearm by an ex-felon.

            Placer County Superior Court Judge Larry D. Gaddis, who presided at a preliminary hearing for the defendants on June 22 and 23, set a trial date of Aug. 17.

            The carjacking incident occurred Nov. 22 in North Highlands. The second incident, in which a shot was fired at the fleeing victim, occurred in Rocklin. The two cases were consolidated for prosecution in Placer County, said Placer Deputy District Attorney Rick Opich.
