FORREST COUNTY, MS (WDAM) - Four suspects in the shooting deaths of two Hattiesburg police officers made their initial appearance in Forrest County Court Monday afternoon. 

Curtis Banks arrived in an orange jumpsuit, and cut off judge Gay Polk-Payton as she tried to swear him in.

Curtis' charge was one count of accessory after the fact of capital murder. His bond was set at $100,000 in connection to the shooting deaths. His previous bond was revoked on a drug possession charge from 2013. Until that is cleared, he cannot bond on the accessory after fact, per the judge.

Cornelius Clark was charged with obstruction of justice and hindering prosecution. Clark allegedly helped prolong the other arrests the night of the shooting. His bond was set at $75,000. 

Joanie Calloway, 22, was originally charged with two counts of capital murder. Her charges were lessened to one count of accessory after the fact. Calloway allegedly helped Marvin Banks knowing he helped kill the two officers. Her bond was set at $75,000.

Marvin Banks, 29, has been charged with two counts of capital murder, one count of grand theft auto and one count of felon in possession of a firearm. Marvin was the alleged shooter. He was accompanied in court by Mississippi State Troopers at his side. His bond was denied for the shooting. His bond was set at $100,000 for possession of a weapon, and grand larceny auto. 

All four suspects have been remanded into custody of the Forrest County Sheriff's Department. 

The two officers that were killed were identified as Benjamin J. Deen, 34, and Liquori Tate, 25. Both bodies were sent to Jackson for autopsy. 

Stay tuned to WDAM.com for the preliminary autopsy report as this story develops.
