a. Between John and Harry, there are two people who say that they have seen you in Jeff's apartment on the night of the murder.
b. Between John, Pete and Harry, there are three people who say that they have seen you in Jeff's apartment on the night of the murder.


In (a) the two people are John and Harry. In (b) the three people are John, Harry and Pete.

Are (a) and (b) grammatically correct with those meanings?
Is that usage of 'between' legitimate?
Is it slang?

Many thanks.
