The suspects allegedly went back to Lomax's car and returned with knives.
Prosecutors say several witnesses identified Lomax of Bloomfield as the person who stabbed 20-year-old Howard.
Muhammad's attorney has said that while some witnesses claim his client had something in his hand that looked like a knife, no one has offered evidence that he swung it at anyone.
