HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

The Mississippi Bureau of Investigations has released results from the autopsy reports of the two slain Hattiesburg police officers. 

Autopsies were conducted Monday at the state crime lab.

According to the report from MBI, Benjamin J. Deen died of a penetrating gun shot wound to the head. Officer Liquori Tate died of a penetrating gun shot wound of the torso. 

The manner of death has been ruled a homicide, according to Forrest County Coroner Butch Benedict. 

The four suspects involved in the incident made their initial appearance Monday afternoon.

Curtis' charge was one count of accessory after the fact of capital murder. His bond was set at $100,000 in connection to the shooting deaths. His previous bond was revoked on a drug possession charge from 2013. Until that is cleared, he cannot bond on the accessory after fact, per the judge.

Cornelius Clark was charged with obstruction of justice and hindering prosecution. Clark allegedly helped prolong the other arrests the night of the shooting. His bond was set at $75,000.

Joanie Calloway, 22, was originally charged with two counts of capital murder. Her charges were lessened to one count of accessory after the fact. Calloway allegedly helped Marvin Banks knowing he helped kill the two officers. Her bond was set at $75,000.

Marvin Banks, 29, has been charged with two counts of capital murder, one count of grand theft auto and one count of felon in possession of a firearm. Marvin was the alleged shooter. He was accompanied in court by Mississippi State Troopers at his side. His bond was denied for the shooting. His bond was set at $100,000 for possession of a weapon, and grand larceny auto.

All four suspects have been remanded into custody of the Forrest County Sheriff's Department.
