The parents of the suspect in the Alviso homicide case have turned themselves in.

The San Jose Police Department says Wilmar and Elizabeth Bautista were booked on suspicion of aiding and abetting their daughter, Jennifer Bautista.

They turned themselves in to Wednesday afternoon.

The younger Bautista is also in jail facing one count of felony vehicular manslaughter with gross negligence in connection with the  death of 20-year-old Norma Leticia Martinez on Dec. 28.

Martinez's near lifeless body was found in the street outside a church.

The women were heard fighting early that morning.  Police say Martinez was either hit by or jumped onto her ex-girlfriend's car as she left.

Jennifer Bautista is also charged with one felony count of hit-and-run and one misdemeanor count of driving while unlicensed.

Her parents will remain in jail until at least Friday.  That is their first date with a judge.

For now they are being held on a no bail warrant.
