DECATUR, AL (WAFF) -

Three men facing capital murder charges made an appearance in court Monday.

Ryan Caudle, Dewayne Hicks and Charles Makekau are charged in the shooting death of James Travers. All three men pleaded not guilty during their arraignment hearing.

Travers was found shot to death on Highway 31 in Decatur in June 2013.

Police said Caudle and Hicks went to his home to steal money and marijuana. Travers was shot as he tried to get away. Investigators said Makekau, Travers' roommate, set up the robbery.

A trial date has not been set.
