The four face a series of charges in the murder, including murder, carjacking, conspiracy and weapons possession.

Thompson, who has been jailed more than 12 times, was released earlier this month after serving time on a charge of theft.

Roberts has been arrested 13 times for drugs and weapons offenses.

Ford and Henry were both sent to prison in 2003. Ford for theft and Henry for bank robbery.
