Two cousins are each facing a charge of aggravated murder after a weekend shooting took the life of a pawn shop manager. They are locked up tonight after showing up at police headquarters for questioning. The murder happened Saturday afternoon on Toledo's east side. Luis and Alexander Osley are now in police custody, accused of killing William Carswell. William's brother, Kevin, owns the pawn shop where the shooting took place. He says William was legally blind.

Police put out two surveillance videos. They called two men seen leaving the shop "people of interest." After the footage aired on 13abc, detectives say the suspects came to the Safety Building to speak with them. The interviews led to arrests.

The suspects say they are innocent. "We came down here because they say they wanted to ask us questions. We didn't come down here for questioning and then lock us up for some [expletive] we didn't do," said Luis Osley. "I apologize for their loss, but I didn't do it."

Luis Osley, 26, and Alexander Osley, 25, are each facing a charge of aggravated murder.

William's funeral is set for Tuesday. His family has set up a fund for his burial. You can donate at any First Merit Bank.
