BARNSTABLE – The suspects charged in the September murder of Christine Ferreira will be back in court this week.

Tyrone Gomes, 30, of Hyannis has a pretrial conference scheduled for Tuesday with the pretrial conference for Denzel Chisholm, 25 of West Yarmouth, and his sister Shannelle Chisholm, 26, of Mashpee, to follow on Friday.

The three are facing first degree murder charges and are accused of luring Ferreira to a rest area on Route 6 eastbound in Barnstable and then killing her.

Prosecutors believe Denzel Chisholm orchestrated Ferreira’s murder in retaliation for her testimony against a member of the Nauti-Block street gang in 2011, a drug trafficking organization officials say Chisholm ran.
