MAYVILLE, N.Y. - Four Elmira men accused of murdering a Town of Carroll couple last week were arraigned in Chautauqua County Court Friday morning.

Davide Coggins, 34, is charged with first degree murder.  A judge set his bail at $2.5 million.

Joshua McCormick, 21, is also charged with first degree murder.  His bail is $1.5 million.

Ricky Knickerbocker, 18, is being held on $1 million bail.  He is charged with second degree murder.

Steven W. Todd, 18, charged with 2nd degree murder.  He pled not guilty.  His bail was set at $1.5 million.

All pleaded not guilty.

All were indicted on at least ten counts each, which also include arson and burglary.  Detectives are still not releasing a motive for the killings, or the connection of the suspects to the victims.  Investigators have said that the home invasion/murder was not a random act.

Gordon and Joyce Skinner were found dead in their Wheeler Road home last week.
