The three 18-year-olds accused of killing him are Noah Fox, Jose Cortez, and Kalvin Solis. They were arraigned together at the Tulare County pre-trial facility today.

Wade's family was also there.

"He was a caring person, he really was," said Janice Fielder, Wade's aunt. "People don't know that, but I'd like (everyone) to know he was really a very loving person."

The suspects' next court date is set for June 12th

A 17-year-old was also arrested in connection with the case.

Wade's family has set up a GoFundMe account. They've also set up an account with Wells Fargo.

The customer name is Jami D Jump.

The account number is 1147690521.
