Investigators said the murders were connected to the robbery of the London's business, Mattress Warehouse. During that hold-up, Jamel Cureton, the leader of the United Blood Nation, was shot and wounded by Doug London.

Prosecutors have argued that the Londons were killed so they would not be able to testify in that robbery.
