HOUSTON (KTRK) -- Two men appeared in court this morning on capital murder charges. Eric Guzman and Jamal Ferguson faced a judge, accused of robbing and shooting a man to death back in early April.

An off-duty Harris County Precinct Four deputy was heading home, when he spotted the shooting victim on Spring Cypress Road.

The victim died at the hospital.

These men are also suspected in a separate case in which a man was carjacked and the suspects took off with his 18-month-old daughter still buckled in her car seat. When the men apparently realized the little girl was in the car, they stopped the vehicle and threw the car seat out of car with the baby still in it. The men were eventually arrested.

At this time, one of the alleged carjackers, Russell Gregory, is on the run. He is also charged with capital murder. Gregory was initially arrested after the baby incident. It's not clear at this time how and when he was freed.
