Two people from Indio will stand trial for breaking into the home of an elderly woman and assaulting her and her caregiver.
The home invasion took place just before 2 in the morning on November 14th 2018, at the home of Carolyn Auburn on South Sunrise Circle in Palm Springs.
That’s where 25 year old Juan Beltran…a parolee, and 24 year old Itati Ceja restrained and assaulted Auburn and her caregiver Randall Bailey.
Oddly enough, Ceja had just worked as a caregiver for Carolyn Auburn also, through the Home Instead Agency, before Auburn requested a different caregiver. Ceja was let go by the agency the day before Ceja and Beltran broke into Ms Auburn’s home.
Beltran has a prior conviction for burglary.
Ceja has no prior convictions but is facing trial for murder in the death Jason Diaz in Indio on June 24th 2020.
Both defendants remain in custody.
