3 indicted in Corpus Christi store owner's slaying

Posted: Updated:

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (AP) - Two men and a woman have been indicted on capital murder charges in the shooting death of a Corpus Christi store owner this spring.

The Corpus Christi Caller-Times (http://bit.ly/1y8d3j8 ) reports 26-year-old Arturo Navarro, 26-year-old Daniel Garcia and 27-year-old Del Victoria Cavazos were indicted on Friday for their roles in the death of 59-year-old Mostafa "Ben" Bighamian. The three remained in jail Saturday. A jail official did not have attorney information for them.

Police found Bighamian at his store, Tim's Market, with gunshot wounds after responding to a robbery call on April 14. He died at an area hospital.

The three suspects were arrested hours later, less than a mile from the market.

Dozens of community members held a memorial for Bighamian following his death.
