Four people have been charged in connection with the deaths of three males found in a Detroit house fire last week.

Tenisha Jackson, 19; Larry Johnson, 20; Rashawn Johnson, 19; and Keeshon Lake, 19, have all been charged with three counts of first-degree murder; three counts felony murder; two counts armed robbery; and one count of arson. Larry Johnson was also charged for Felony Firearm and Possession of Heroin.

Firefighters responded to a house fire on Bentler Street Feb. 10. They discovered three bodies inside the home. Two of the victims were already deceased and the third person was rushed to the hospital.

A medical examiner has determined Lawrence Bowman, 51, died of a gunshot wound to the head. He also suffered multiple stab wounds, which were thought initially to have been the cause of death.

Michael Hoots, 24, died from multiple stab wounds.

Nicholas Bowman, 26, later died at the hospital as a result of multiple stab wounds. He is the son of Lawrence Bowman. The father and son lived at the home. Hoots was visiting from Livonia.

Police say evidence led them to a the stolen Chrysler 200 that belonged to Hoots. The vehicle was in Redford Township. Jackson and Larry Johnson were arrested at a home there. Police say they recovered items belonging to the victims and bloody clothing.

Police were then lead to two other locations and arrested Rayshawn Johnson and Lake, and recovered more bloody clothing.

Police have not determined at this time why the Bowman's home on Bentler street was targeted for robbery, and friends say they are unsure why Hoots was at that location.

    The case was originally about workplace discrimination. Now it's dragged on for more than a decade despite the case appearing to be one that the Suburban Mobility Authority for Regional Transportation can't win.
