Decuir and Mims were initially arrested on August 3 in connection with another armed robbery that occurred on July 28 near Saint Mary's Cathedral before investigators linked them to the Twin Peaks homicide.

Bail has been set at $5 million for Decuir.

Mims, who has previous convictions and arrests for auto burglary and receiving stolen goods, was on probation at the time of the shooting. He had just been released from jail on July 11 as part of a pre-trial diversion program after an arrest on a weapons charge.He is being held without bail.

Both are due back in court on Friday.
