A 44-year-old man and a 45-year-old woman have been charged in a 31-year-old Detroit man's murder in the early hours after the July 4 holiday, records show.

Kosti Jerome Fields, 44, is charged with first-degree premeditated murder, two counts of felony firearm, and one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm. He was denied bond at his weekend arraignment, and will remain at Wayne County Jail as his case is decided.

The shooting homicide took place about 1:51 a.m. on the 14300 block of Dolphin, said Officer Holly Lowe, a Detroit Police Department spokeswoman. The area is north of Schoolcraft and west of West Outer Drive.

The victim was spotted lying face-down in a driveway, having suffered multiple gunshot wounds to his chest.

But by the time police arrived, he had been transported to the hospital, where he died.

Police believe the victim and Fields had been arguing, and that Fields returned, armed, the passenger in a 2005 red Cadillac, and started firing.

The suspected driver of that Cadillac, Marcia Rena Rogers, 45, is charged with felony firearm and accessory to a felony after the fact. At her weekend arraignment, Rogers was given a $50,000 bond, and records show that as of Monday morning, she remains an inmate at Wayne County Jail.
