News10NBC has been following the latest in the case of six people charged in connection with a triple homicide in Rochester. Three of those suspects were in city court.

Andre McFarlane, Steve Fulcott and Jessica Leonard are all facing drug charges along with charges of criminal possession of a weapon. They appeared in court Wednesday morning with their lawyers. All three were arrested Friday after a raid on Clifford Avenue.

During that raid, police found 80 pounds of marijuana along with a gun that has been ballistically linked to the murders of Michael Nelson, and cousins, Jacquelyn and Jermillah Simmons. The three were found shot to death in a home on Chili Avenue last week.
