Four males charged in Cleveland Heights murder give police full confession

CLEVELAND HEIGHTS, Ohio - Cleveland Heights Chief of Police Jeffrey Robertson announced Saturday that the four men charged for the murder of restaurant owner Jim Brennan have all given a full confession.

The four males, Brandon Jones, Darien Jones, Paul Turner and Devon Turner were charged Thursday with aggravated murder and aggravated robbery for Brennan's death.


Brennan, 61, died at the hospital shortly after he was shot during an attempted robbery at Brennan's Colony Monday, June 30.

According to Chief Robertson, Brandon Jones was an employee of Brennan's Colony at the time of the shooting. 

At a press conference Thursday evening, police did not comment on if the four males charged were members of the Heartless Felon gang.

The four charged are due in court sometime next week.

Devon and Paul Turner currently have charges against them for aggravated robbery, kidnapping, aggravated theft, robbery and cruelty to animals.

Residents, employees and patrons of the busy Cedar Lee business district have responded with shock at the daytime homicide of the well-liked local businessman. Hundreds gathered for a vigil for the man Tuesday night.
