    Three suspects arrested, one still on the streets.

    "Investigators said a friend of the suspects has told police the four were involved and that they have talked openly about the robbery and the murder of customer Greg Placette, 64. Witnesses said Placette jumped from his seat at the Denny’s when the gunmen pointed a gun at a child."

    Has the one who had a previous felony bonded out, or was for a different thing before the cops got a tip about the robbery and murder? I didn't quite understand.

    Yes, police had all three suspects in custody about an hour after the robbery/murder, but that was for unrelated incident so they were let go. Then after police identified them as suspects in robbery/murder, they were arrested, except for the one who is on the run.

    One of four men accused of killing a customer and wounding an employee at a Houston restaurant in 2013 agreed Tuesday to testify against his partners in exchange for a reduced sentence of 40 years in prison.

    Just minutes before his trial was set to begin, Kenya D. Jackson admitted responsibility and gave details of the robbery of the Denny's restaurant on Washington Street near Interstate 10.

    (...)

    If Jackson testifies truthfully against the others, prosecutors will reduce the charges against him to aggravated robbery and agree to 40-year sentence. He will not be eligible for parole until he has served at least half of that time.

    (...)

    Jackson was arrested with Leroy Houston, 21, and cousins Mario Hilton, 20, and Corey Hilton. Corey Hilton died of an aggressive form of cancer while waiting to go to trial. He would have been 23 next week.

    A man involved in a deadly robbery at a Houston Denny's pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 50 years in prison on Wednesday, according to the district attorney's office.

    Leroy Houston, 21, was one of four suspects accused in a robbery in August 2013 at a Denny's on Interstate 10 and Washington Avenue. A customer was killed and an employee was injured.
