ARLINGTON, Texas — Two men accused of killing and robbing a Texas pastor inside his church have been charged with capital murder.
Steven Lawayne Nelson and Anthony Gregory Springs were charged Monday by Arlington police following their weekend arrests.
Both men also were charged with attempted capital murder in connection with the robbery and beating of a NorthPointe Baptist Church employee in last week's crime.
Arlington police say tips from the public led to the break in the case.
Police documents say two women told police the men started laughing and making inappropriate comments while watching news reports about the pastor's death.
Police obtained a store's surveillance footage showing both men using the victims' stolen credit cards. And authorities say Springs later led them to the church employee's stolen car.
