A pretrial hearing takes place today for two men charged with killing one man and trying to kill two others in the parking lot of Melba's restaurant.

Prosecutors are looking to prove that Jacob Love and Janero McBride murdered Toby "Flea" Roche in an ambush style attack in May of last year.

Investigators say the pair waited in a white car parked behind the popular restaurant for about an hour before Roche and two others arrived in a red Honda.

A witness told police two gunmen got out the car and started shooting leading to an exchange of gunfire.
