ASBURY PARK — Monmouth County Prosecutor Chris Gramiccioni has charged brothers Steven and Michael Taylor, along with Avery Hopes, with multiple charges, including murder and conspiracy in connection to the shooting death of Denzel Morgan Hicks.

According to the state Department of Corrections, Morgan Hicks had only been out of jail for four months when he was killed.

How the suspects may have known the victim is still under investigation, but Gramiccioni says that Hick's murder may have been linked to a previous killing from 2011.
