After Dominique Hanks fired shots at a Miller Park home in March, he yelled, “Go, go, go” to his getaway driver, prosecutors said Friday.

Hanks, driver Brittany Kelley and passenger Brianna Kelley appeared in court for the first time Friday in connection with the March 12 slaying of Michael Streich.

Another man, Brandon Shepherd, 23, is in custody out of state and faces extradition to Nebraska on first-degree murder and weapon charges.

Hanks, 24, who is charged with first-degree murder and two weapon charges, couldn’t stop talking at the Friday hearing.

The audience in the gallery couldn’t hear him because the podium where prisoners stand doesn’t have a microphone. But it was clear his lips kept moving.

Douglas County Judge Marcena Hendrix cut the hearing short and moved on to the next inmate.

“Please stop talking,” Hendrix said after she announced Hanks was charged with first-degree murder. “OK, you’re excused, you’ll be held without (bail).”

A woman stormed out of the gallery, crying and distraught.

Brittany Kelley and Brianna Kelley, 22-year-old twins, are each charged with criminal conspiracy to commit robbery. Each was ordered held on $100,000 bail.

Streich, 40, was fatally shot on March 12 at his home near 33rd Street and Laurel Avenue. Adam Nathan, 37, was wounded.

Prosecutor Madison McNary said Brittany Kelley told Omaha police that she drove the other three to Streich’s home. Brianna Kelley told authorities that she was a passenger in the vehicle, McNary said.

After Hanks and Shepherd were inside for about 10-15 minutes, they returned to the vehicle and Hanks told Brittany Kelley to drive, McNary said. Brittany Kelley told police that she took the group back to Jackson Tower apartments.
