We have an update on last week's robbery at a Subway restaurant that left one customer dead: both of the suspects in the case have made their first appearances in court.

Yesterday, 17-year-olds Dante Wayne Talbert and Xavier Bernard Jones heard the charges of capital murder that were brought against them.

Prosecutors say the teens killed 36-year-old Christopher McGrew during a robbery at a Subway in southeast Houston.

Authorities say Jones and Talbert were in the process or robbing the restaurant when Jones began fighting with McGrew.

At some point, shots were fired and McGrew was killed.
