SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - Bloody footprints at the scene of a Spokane homicide helped police arrest four suspects.

Neighbors told police the men leaving the victim’s apartment after a loud argument were transients. Officers found the suspects at homeless hangouts and say shoes matched footprints.

KXLY reports (https://bit.ly/1vepJb9 ) the four appeared in court Thursday and were each held for investigation of murder with bail set at $1 million each.

Police say the four killed 33-year-old Damien L. Stewart at his lower South Hill apartment during a robbery. He was strangled with his own jewelry and stabbed. His body was found Sunday and the suspects were arrested Wednesday night.

Neighbors said Stewart often welcomed street people to his home.
