Two homicide suspects were arraigned Wednesday in Lucas County Common Pleas Court before visiting Judge J. Ronald Bowman.

Judge Bowman continued his $2 million bond and set a pretrial hearing for April 16.

Tyrone Hoskins, Jr., 23, of 618 Woodland Ave. also pleaded not guilty to murder and participating in a criminal gang in connection with the Feb. 2 death of Michael Williams, Jr., 24, who was shot in the 1500 block of Ottawa Drive.

Judge Bowman continued his $1 million bond and set a pre-trial hearing for April 9 when his co-defendant, Rishad Williams, 21, also is to be in court.
