RED BANK, Tenn. (UTC/The Loop) — Police in Red Bank have charged four people in the crowbar slaying of a man in his home.

One of those charged in the killing of 27-year-old Jordan Collins late Friday or early Saturday is the victim’s former roommate, according to the Chattanooga Times Free Press ( ).

Police said it was the use of Collins’ credit cards that led police to the suspects after watching surveillance video of purchases being made at a Kangaroo convenience store and a Walmart store.

Charged with criminal homicide are the former roommate, 19-year-old Zachary Jordan Hughes; 27-year-old Jeremy Reinig and a 16-year-old male. Lorenzo Bell, who is 19, is charged with fraudulent credit card use.

A judge told them Monday to get attorneys.
