They're homes were raided by Russian authorities early Sunday morning, seeking information on suspects being held by authorities. (SOUNDBITE) (Russian) ALPA BARKHANAYEVA, RELATIVE OF ANZOR GUBASHEV AND ZAUR DADAYEV, SAYING: "All three boys are my relatives, they are very good guys. Anzor and Shagit were brought up only by their mother alone, without father. They studied very well at school. I have nothing bad to say about them, I don't know..." Five men in total, all ethnic Chechans, were ordered by a Moscow court to remain in custody. Two of them have been charged for Nemtsov's murder. Nemtsov was shot dead on Feb. 27 not far from the Kremlin walls, in what is the highest-profile killing of an opposition figure in President Vladimir Putin's 15 years in power.
