Two men charged with capital murder after a body was found in a ditch in Baytown will be in court this morning.

The two suspects were arrested on Tuesday. They are accused of robbing and fatally stabbing a man, and leaving his body by the side of the road. The victim has been identified as Christian Brown.

Brown's body was found early in morning the day after Christmas in the 7600 block of Harrison Street in Baytown. He'd been stabbed several times.

At the time, investigators with the Harris County Sheriff's Office had no suspects and no clear motive. This week, they arrested Anthony Bowen, 45, and Timothy Johnson, 17.

The two are charged with capital murder, accused of stabbing Brown with a kitchen knife and robbing him. They are both being held without bond.
