The thugs, pictured above, were arraigned today and charged with the murder of military Veteran and father, James Vester.  Tryon Kincade, 19, and Tyshaune Kincade, 18, both of Indianapolis, were formally charged Tuesday with murder and robbery.  Police are also tying these two retrobates to other Craigslist crimes that have occurred in October and November. Vester got in touch with the alleged murderers when answering a Craigslist ad for an iPad they were selling.

James Vester
This news article states the two are going to hire their own private attorneys...let me guess, they are going to say Vester tried to rob them.  Vester borrowed a gun from a friend before meeting the thugs because he knew the neighborhood where he was meeting them was rough.  Vester was seen walking into a breezeway of their apartments and moments later someone heard shouting "this is a robbery" and gunshots.  Vester was then seen trying to get to his car...witnesses say he had a gun.  The two thugs were seen fleeing the scene with a black handgun.

Police later found an iPad at the house of the thugs incubator, Markesha Taylor, and the box matching the serial number to the iPad was found at the scene of the crime.  Also found at the mother's house were other cell phones and identification information belonging to other victims of Craigslist robberies.  The two thugs told police that the phones with Vester's information didn't belong to them, however, the mother said they did.
According to a probable cause affidavit, police had been tracking several robberies set up through Craigslist for about two months. The affidavit says the robbers stole several hundred dollars in cash, iPhones and other cellphones from victims in four robberies during October and November.
The affidavit connects the Kincade brothers to the telephone number used during those robberies, though they have not been charged in any of those other cases.
Both brothers appeared in court Tuesday and said they intend to hire private counsel for their cases. They will next appear in court on Dec. 20.

They continue to be held without bond. [link]
So much for this (from their "brother" who is currently under house arrest):
