CLEVELAND -- Two pairs of brothers have been formally indicted in connection with the killing of Cleveland Heights restaurant owner Jim Brennan, Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Timothy J. McGinty announced late Monday afternoon.

The Grand Jury issued an indictment charging Brandon Jones, 23, Darien Jones, 21, and Devonne Turner, 26, each with two counts of Aggravated Murder, four counts of Kidnapping, three counts of Aggravated Robbery, two counts of Aggravated Burglary, two counts of Felonious Assault and one count of Murder.
Devonne Turner also was charged with one count each of Receiving Stolen Property and Having Weapons Under Disability.
The Grand Jury also indicted Paul Turner, 23, on two counts of Obstructing Justice and one count each of Having Weapons Under Disability and Tampering With Evidence.

The Jones brothers live in Garfield Heights. The Turners live in Cleveland.
At the time of Brennan's killing, there was a warrant out for the Turner brothers because they had failed to appear at their June 4 arraignment on charges that included Felonious Assault, Aggravated Robbery and Cruelty to Animals.
They were arraigned on those charges last week, and their case was assigned to Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court Judge Maureen Clancy
