Two Rochester men have been arraigned on second degree murder charges in connection with a fatal shooting on Colvin Street.
For the second time in the last two days, another case where teenagers are facing arraignment on murder charges. Wednesday an 18-year-old was charged in a Genesee Street homicide, Thursday, two teens charged in the shooting death of a man on Colvin Street in November.
Dayquane Coley, 18, along with Scottie Fead, 17, are charged with murder, along with robbery and assault in connection with the death of Steven Killings, 24. Both men pled not guilty and are being held without bail.
The two are accused of stealing marijuana from Killings as he sat in a car with another man on Colvin Street near Maple Street, the day before Thanksgiving. Police say during the robbery, the two suspects fired multiple shots hitting both men in the head. Killings died at Strong Hospital, the other passenger, David Donaldson survived the incident. In court, the judge issued an order of protection.
"The order of protection is for the individual who has survived and that is just standard procedure at this point to make sure there is no undue influence against that individual," said Prosecutor Kyle Steinebach.
Steinebach says he will be meeting with Rochester police Thursday to go over a list of potential witnesses. He would not comment on whether or not the survivor in the shooting will be called to testify in this case.
Both defendants are due back in court next week, for preliminary hearings.
