FAIRFIELD — Four men who face murder and conspiracy charges for the Feb. 15 shooting death of 16-year-old Naomy Rojas made their first court appearance Tuesday since their arrests last week.

Jovon N. Granado, 24, Robert F. Dishman, 21, Eric A. Rico, 19, and Jesus Rodriguez, 22, all of Fairfield, did not enter pleas. Instead, they had private defense attorneys appointed for each of them and were ordered to return to court March 10. All four suspects are in jail without bail.

Rojas was fatally shot at a Phoenix Drive apartment complex.

Two days before the four suspects were arrested, Fairfield police raided Granado’s apartment on Phoenix Drive and a home in Suisun City. Police seized four guns, methamphetamine and marijuana from the residences. Court records reflect police had recently watched Granado selling drugs at both residences.

Police believe the four suspects went to the Phoenix Drive apartment complex to confront a person who was with Rojas. Shots were fired around 1:20 a.m. and Rojas was killed. Police said they do not believe she was the target. Her body was discovered a few hours later behind the apartment complex, near some railroad tracks.

    the guy she was with was standing right next to her when the shots were fired and as the ran away he and others got away from what ive heard. she was shot in the back of the head. police were called when around 120 am after shots were fired, and found nothing nor did they see anything,around 4 something 5 the police were called again because some one had saw her body and thats why it took so long for them to come out. i live on phoenix , more in the front then so in the back. but cops arent down trying to get to the bottom this.. they have been partolling and going back and forth ever since this poor little girls life was tooken.. now there is deff more to the story but they wont say nothing tell its compelete solved, two of this little boy are trying to say they arent guilty, one says he wasnt even in fairfield at the time and the other its his mom more so saying he wouldnt hurt any one and he is not guilty, yet these boys are in a gang and have a recored.. and to be in a gang you either have killed someone, beat the crap out of some one, or been a get away car for someone else who killed or jumped someone etc.. so no , they arent innnocent and yes they would hurt someone..
