DANVILLE, Ill. (AP) - Two men charged with killing three Danville residents in 2007 are scheduled to be tried in June.

Vermilion County Circuit Judge Michael Clary on Monday set a June 20 trial date for 36-year-old David Moore of Chicago and 26-year-old Jerome Harris of Danville.

They're each charged with first-degree murder in the March 2007 shooting deaths of 30-year-old Rodney Pepper, 19-year-old Madisen Leverenz and 21-year-old TaBreyon McCullough. Moore and Harris have pleaded not guilty.

Pepper was found shot to death in the street outside the Main Street duplex where he lived. Leverenz and McCollough were found dead inside. Police have never publicly discussed potential motives.

Moore and Harris were arrested early this month and are being held without bond.
