They have been accused of shooting three men in execution style outside the entrance to the Wisconsin quarry.
Friday’s suspect waived his right to a preliminary hearing.
If convicted, both face life imprisonment.
The bodies of 24-year-old Peng Lor, 24-year-old Nemo Yang, and 23-year-old Trevor Maloney were found outside the Romskog quarry near West Salem on July 23.
West Salem is about 14 miles (23 km) northeast of Lacrosse on the Minnesota border.
