Two suspects in the murder of an Erie man from back in June appeared in court Tuesday morning for their formal arraignment.

24-year-old Jalen Reynolds and 26-year-old Taisha Santiago heard their charges of murder and conspiracy in front of Judge Daniel Brabender.

The Erie County District Attorney is seeking first-degree murder charges against them.

25-year-old LaShonta Dade is also charged in connection to the shooting death of 28-year-old David Tate.  She did not appear in court, her attorney waived her arraignment.

Police say the three were looking to rob someone when a 4th suspect, 29-year-old David Dalton, allegedly shot and killed Tate.

The trial is set for all the defendants, and is expected to start in January.
