Police in Meridian, Mississippi, say the Oct. 16 robbery left Frank’s Drive-In owner Robert Trout dead and three customers wounded. Sgt. Dareall Thompson says Sanders was from Meridian, he and Davis had been living in Killeen and they were visiting Mississippi when the robbery happened.

Thompson says both suspects face extradition. Jail records didn’t immediately list attorneys for them. Killeen is 60 miles north of Austin.
