Loyoza and Martinez were charged with the December, 2016 slaying of Crispin Coliz, who was on his way home from a Chicago Bulls game.
Navarro was arrested in the murder of 15-year-old Xavier Soto and shooting of another teen in April, 2017 and Rojas was accused in the 2015 slaying of 19-year-old Daniel Guerra.
Lozoya, Martinez and Rojas entered not guilty pleas to the federal charges.
