Hundreds of people attended the funeral Saturday for Jim Brennan, owner of Brennan’s Colony restaurant in the Cedar Lee area of Cleveland Heights. He was murdered last Monday in what police believe was an attempted robbery.

On Thursday, Brennan’s friend Steve Presser, owner of Big Fun in Coventry, said the case was moving forward.

“I applaud our city government and absolutely applaud our police force, led by Chief Robertson. This was a difficult situation that came out of nowhere. Rumors are running amok. At this point, no one really knows the answers.”

Also Thursday, police charged Devon Turner, Paul Turner, Darian Jones and Brandon Jones with aggravated murder and aggravated robbery. The Cleveland brothers -- aged 20 to 23 -- have extensive criminal records.  Brandon Jones had worked at Brennan’s Colony as a cook for about a month prior to the shooting.

Cleveland Heights Police Chief Jeffrey Robertson could not be reached for comment over the weekend, but issued a statement after the funeral that police had gotten confessions from the suspects.
