A federal grand jury has indicted two Pennsylvania teenagers and four Shenandoah police officers in a hate crimes investigation into a fatal attack on a Hispanic man.

Derrick Donchak and Brandon Piekarsky were charged with a hate crime for the fatal beating of Luis Ramirez while shouting racial epithets at him in July 2008.

Separate indictments accuse Shenandoah police chief, Matthew Nestor, and three officers under his command with a variety of charges, including witness tampering and lying to the FBI. The indictments were announced at the Justice Department.

Four youths — including Donchak and Piekarsky — were previously charged in state court in connection with Ramirez's death. A jury cleared two other teens of all serious charges, and a fourth pleaded guilty to federal charges.
