TULSA, Okla. (AP) - Bond has been reduced for two Muskogee men after they testified against their co-defendants in a fatal shooting outside a local convenience store last year.

The Tulsa World reports (bit.ly/1R7qZno) Johnathan Jerome Sweet and Desmond Terrell Jackson were permitted to be released on bond after waiving their preliminary hearing and testifying against Homersell Marvin Thomas and Kejuan Da’Ray Jones.

Bond for Sweet and Jackson was set at $5,000; Thomas and Jones remain jailed without bond.

Special Judge Cliff Smith ordered Thomas and Jones to be held for trial on Friday after hearing testimony from Sweet, Jackson and two other witnesses.

The four are charged in the death of 18-year-old Aaron Lajun Armstrong, who was fatally shot Sept. 12 in the parking lot of the convenience store.
