Newton was shot and killed on July 30 in the home she shared with her boyfriend.

A Brookhaven police detective testified in court Tuesday that surveillance video showed Justin Anderson armed with a gun in the home during what appeared to be a burglary.

Defense attorneys argued there wasn’t enough evidence to prove who the shooter was and that their bonds should be lowered.

The suspects all declined to testify on their own behalf during the hearing.

Their cases will now be bound over to the next grand jury.
