HOUSTON - Charges have been filed against the men who police say opened fire and robbed customers at a House of Pies restaurant. Detectives say the men also murdered someone just hours before the robbery.

Marquis Davis, 19, was in court Monday and charged with capital murder and aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon.

The other suspect, 19-year-old Donald Nealey, is also charged with capital murder and aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon for his roles in both shootings.

Court records indicate Nealey shot and killed Stanly Kumbanattel during a robbery at the Little Nell apartments in the 8500 block of West Sam Houston Parkway on March 6.

"There were three pops and after that, another car pulled up and the car pulled up and they shot him again," said Jerome Monroe, who heard the shots at around 8:30 p.m. that night.

Houston police say their investigation led them to identify Davis and Nealey as the men who were also involved in the shooting at the House of Pies restaurant on Westheimer Road. Police say the duo went to House of Pies at around 10 p.m. where Davis opened fire and both men robbed customers of cash and other personal items.

Crime scene technicians say they found the SUV that was spotted leaving the scene of the murder at the scene of the House of Pies shooting, and that's how the two crimes were linked together.

Davis was caught when police arrived, but Nealey got away.

Nealey was arrested on March 10.
