Suspects in Brennan's Colony murder appear in court

CLEVELAND HEIGHTS -- The four men who were arrested and charged in the murder of Jim Brennan, owner of Brennan's Colony Tavern and Restaurant, appeared in Cleveland Heights Municipal Court Monday afternoon before Judge A. Deane Buchanan.

All four waived their right to a preliminary hearing and all four had their cases sent down to the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor's Office where a grand jury will review the charges.

Darien Jones, Devon Turner and Brandon Jones will all remain in custody under $1 million bond each. Paul Turner's bond remains at $500,000.

Darien Jones is represented by attorney Randolph Howard; Devon Turner is represented by attorney J. Alex Morton; Brandon Jones is represented by attorney Marlene Ridenour; and Paul Turner is represented by attorney Kimberly Bolton.

All four attorneys were appointed by Buchanan because all four suspects have said they are indigent and cannot pay an attorney.

The charges range from aggravated robbery, aggravated murder and kidnapping to tampering with evidence and obstruction of justice.
