KILLEEN, Texas — Investigators say two suspects in the fatal shooting of a sports bar owner in Mississippi during a robbery have been arrested in Central Texas.

Police say 20-year-old Donshay Meundre Sanders and his girlfriend, 25-year-old Dystiny Denice Davis, were arrested Tuesday in Killeen (kih-LEEN’).

A police statement says both suspects face warrants for capital murder, armed robbery and three counts of attempted murder.

Police in Meridian, Mississippi, say the Oct. 16 robbery left Frank’s Drive-In owner Robert Trout dead and three customers wounded. Sgt. Dareall (duh-REL’) Thompson says Sanders was from Meridian, he and Davis had been living in Killeen and they were visiting Mississippi when the robbery happened.

Thompson says both suspects face extradition. Jail records didn’t immediately list attorneys for them.

Killeen is 60 miles (96 kilometers) north of Austin.
