Three people have been charged in connection with the murder of a Marietta man back in July.

Gwinnett County police say Jovian Lanus, Tyler Estrada and Diara Hood were all charged with murder and two counts of armed robbery. Lanus was also charged with aggravated assault.

Authorities were searching for the suspects after they found Steven Carden dead due to a gunshot wound back on July 29 at the Celadon apartments in Norcross.

Police say when they arrived on the scene, they also found Thomas Smith with blunt force trauma to his head. 

According to the police report, Smith said that he and Carden were walking through the apartment complex when they had a brief conversation with two other men.

Smith went on to say he was eventually struck from behind with an unknown object, according to authorities.

All three suspects remain in jail without bond.
