Kane County prosecutors are attempting to obtain DNA samples from two Joliet brothers accused of shooting a man to death in the bathroom of an Aurora restaurant last month.
In an effort to connect the brothers, Jaquan Hosey-Green, 19, and Dimitri Hosey-Green, 18, to evidence found at the scene of the shooting, prosecutors have filed a motion asking the court to compel the men to submit DNA swab samples.
In the motion, prosecutors said that a handgun recovered at the scene of the shooting, in the 800 block of North Lake Street, could hold potential evidence against the men. Shell casings, and other pieces of evidence, including a shirt with red stains and a pair of pants believed to be worn at the time of the shooting, were also recovered.
Prosecutors said several witnesses have identified the brothers as being involved in the homicide of 20-year-old Arin Williams.
Williams was shot during what police believed to be a drug deal gone bad inside the bathroom of La Torta Carniceria y Taqueria. Police said Williams and the two suspects entered the bathroom and began to fight. Williams was shot once in the head. The suspects fled the scene and were taken into custody in Cicero.
The recovered evidence is expected to be swabbed for DNA evidence, which prosecutors said could be tied back to the Hosey-Green brothers.
Jaquan Hosey-Green is being held on $1 million bond. His brother, Dimitri, is being held on $1.5 million bond for allegedly shooting the weapon that killed Williams.
The brothers were transferred from the Kane County Jail to the Kendall County Jail last month because a family member of Williams works as a correctional officer at the Kane County facility where the men were being housed, said Kane County Sheriff’s spokesman Lt. Patrick Gengler.
Their next appearance in Kane County is scheduled for Feb. 28.
