This week, Kennedy testified that it was Waire who pulled the trigger during the December 8 robbery. Police say, during the crime,  Waire and Kennedy stole $25 and some marijuana.  In the 911 calls made by Jones' friends who were in the apartment at the time of the shooting, they say the suspects came in with guns and were wearing disguises on their faces.

Kennedy was arrested the day after the shooting, and suspended from the WMU men's basketball team. His name is no longer on their roster online.

Waire was arrested a week after the shooting. This week, a judge ruled he would stand trial in the case.

Both suspects graduated from Muskegon High School, where they played basketball together.
