Pompey was important to the plot of Julius Caesar for many reasons. The first is because Pompey was part of that original trio of people that were going to rule together. Then Julius Caesar freaks out and wants to rule by himself so he goes off and decides to kill Pompey. This makes Julius Caesar very big headed. He begins to like himself a bit too much, and does things just to get attention and pretend that he is modest (like refusing the crown three times before finally accepting it.)

This leaves Pompey's people in a bit of a predicament. They have to choose between death, and following Julius Caesar's rule. Many of them decide to follow Caesar, and many decide to just die.

Cassius and Brutus have a similar relationship. Cassius needs Brutus to be able to go through with his plan. Without Brutus, he wouldn't get away with it because he wouldn't have an insider in on the assassination plans. Even if Cassius went through with the plans to kill Caesar with the help of Brutus, and he was successful; people would look down on this. Brutus has the power to make anything he does wrong look like the politically correct thing to do. If the group gets away with killing Caesar, then they will need someone to make everyone else see their side. That is Brutus.

So in the end, Brutus is being used intentionally, and Pompey being murdered was a good thing to Caesar.
