    The four men from the Fort Myers area are accused of fatally shooting Taylor during an attempted robbery at his home. All have pleaded not guilty and face potential life prison sentences if convicted.

    A fifth man previously pleaded guilty to murder and burglary charges and is likely to testify against the others.
