Hilliard and Daniels were originally charged in connection with a string of robberies and burglaries in August. Those charges were dismissed and re-filed with the additional counts Wednesday.

Police said Kayla Ferrante, 17, was killed while riding in a car with her boyfriend, the night after her graduation from Memorial High School. Arrest reports said a witness told police that Daniels shot at the car multiple times with an AK-47 rifle, reportedly believing it to be driven by a rival gang member. A bullet traveled through the license plate of the car, through two seats and hit Ferrante in the chest.
