Brice Rhodes and Jacorey Taylor are accused of killing Christopher Jones and brothers Maurice Gordon and Larry Ordway.
Taylor took a plea deal in January. He agreed to testify against Rhodes in exchange for 10 years in jail or 20 years of probation.
But new court documents show Rhodes sent Taylor a threatening letter last summer.

Rhodes wanted Taylor to say he made everything up.
"Go to trial. All they have on you is he say she say that's it," the note read. It ended with Rhodes writing, "Let's clean this up and go home."
The note was accompanied by a printed copy of Taylor's testimony with the words "Rats Get Exposed" at the top.
