All Four Suspects In Taylor Murder Indicted

Jason Mitchell, 19, left; Charles Wardlow, 18, center; and Venjah Hunte, 20, appear before a judge via a video link from the Miami Dade County Jail in Miami, in this three-picture combo, Tuesday Dec. 4, 2007. The three men charged with murdering Sean Taylor were denied bail Tuesday.  

All four suspects in the murder of NFL player Sean Taylor have been indicted by a grand jury in Miami.  CNN reports that three adult suspects are under suicide watch and behind bars in Miami.  The fourth suspect, 17-year-old Eric Rivera Junior, has been named as the triggerman and is in the custody of Florida juvenile justice authorities.  Taylor, who played for the Washington Redskins, died last Tuesday after he was shot during a home-invasion burglary early Monday at his Miami-area home. 

All four suspects have been charged with first-degree felony murder and armed burglary.  The three adult suspects are 20-year-old Venjah Hunt, 19-year-old Jason Mitchell and 18-year-old Charles Wardlow.  They appeared in court in Miami Tuesday via video conference, wearing green vests that defense attorneys called “suicide safety smocks.”  They were ordered held without bond.
