Two Beaumont men were indicted this week on capital murder charges in the April 29th fatal shooting of a convenience store owner from Sri Lanka.

John David Johnson and Chandler Kyle both 19, are accused in the death of Mettha Kuruppu.

Both men are being held at the Jefferson County jail on $2 million bonds each.

Chandler told detectives he planned to rob the Pick-N-Shop store on Major Drive when he killed its owner, according to a probable cause affidavit in the case.
