Two brothers charged in the Jan. 29 double murder in a Walmart parking lot had their cases bound over to the grand jury today.

Demetrius Coleman, 21, and Denarius Coleman, 19, former Chicago residents living in Antioch, are charged with two counts of first-degree murder in the shooting deaths of cousins Latre Lillard, 19, and Andre Chesterfield, 19, both of Murfreesboro. Their bloodied bodies were found lying in store parking lot off Old Fort Parkway around 11 p.m. that night.

General Sessions Judge David Loughry set bond for Demetrius Coleman at $750,000 after previously setting the same bond for his younger brother.

Loughry sent the case to the May session of the grand jury after finding probable cause that they shot the two men to death in a drug-related robbery.

Denarius Coleman’s girlfriend, Ladorothy Morrison, delivered the most damaging testimony to the defendants during Wednesday’s hearing, saying Denarius told her he met someone from Murfreesboro and was going to have an “easy takedown” that night.

Morrison also testified he told her he was going to rob somebody that night. Later that night at his apartment at Nashboro Village, she testified, he told her “basically he killed two people.”
