Two Joliet brothers have been charged with murder and are being held on at least $100,000 bond each in connection with the shooting death of a 20-year-old man Monday night in a restaurant on Aurora's west side.

A Kane County judge on Thursday set bond at $150,000 for Dimitri J. Hosey-Green, 18, and at $100,000 for Jaquan D. Hosey-Green, 19. The suspects were kept in jail during the hearing and appeared via video.

The Hosey-Green brothers were charged late Wednesday night with one count each of first-degree murder after the shooting death of Arin T. Williams of Aurora at a restaurant on the 800 block of north Lake Street, authorities said.

Dimitri is accused of firing the weapon that killed Williams about 7:35 p.m. Monday inside the bathroom at La Torta restaurant in the Northgate Shopping Center.

Police said the brothers, who both live on the 1200 block of Fairfield in Joliet, are accused of going with Williams to the restaurant under the guise of buying drugs. The three entered a bathroom, where the Hosey-Green brothers began beating Williams and trying to rob him. Police said Dimitri Hosey-Green fired one shot into Williams' head before he and his brother ran east across Lake Street to a relative's apartment.

Aurora spokesman Dan Ferrelli said witnesses and footage from security cameras pointed police in the right direction and they were able to arrest the brothers less than 24 hours after the shooting occurred. The two were taken into custody about 1:45 p.m. Tuesday in Cicero.

"We had some really good direction and statements from witnesses, even on the scene," Ferrelli said. "When you get that kind of information from people that see it as it happens, it shortens up the time in which detectives may have to chase down bad leads."

The brothers apparently tried to hide evidence in the apartment complex Monday night before a family member drove them to Joliet, but Ferrelli said police later found it. Ferrelli would not describe what type of evidence was found.

The Hosey-Green brothers are due back in Kane County court at 9 a.m. Friday, Jan. 24.
