All four men were indicted in December on charges including conspiracy to commit murder, attempted murder and weapons offenses in the July 17, 2018, shooting in which a bullet pierced the wall of Jennifer’s bedroom in her home at Elmer and Church streets and struck her as she slept.
If convicted, all four men could face life in prison.
Senior Prosecutor Elizabeth Vogelsong said during a previous court appearance that Jennifer’s death was a result of a volley of gunshots set off by the four men moments after they had walked onto the first block of Elmer Street early that morning. Vogelsong said people were in the street and on the porch of a home when four men began firing.
