BELTON (June 11, 2014) Corey Thomas Williams, 20, of Houston, who’s accused of killing a Temple convenience store clerk in April, was indicted Wednesday for capital murder.

Williams remains in the Bell County Jail in lieu of bonds totaling more than $1.5 million and without bond on a motion to revoke probation.

The indictment stems from the April 2 shooting death of Mazhar Aslam, 50 of Temple, who was killed during a robbery at Pool's Grocery at 1720 South 1st St.

Aslam, the father of five, died at the scene of the shooting, which was reported at around 11:35 pm. on April 2.

A second employee was wounded.

Robbery was evidently the motive for the shooting, Temple police Cpl. Christopher Wilcox said.

The cash registers in the store appeared to have been moved and an undisclosed amount of money was taken, he said.

Houston police arrested Williams on April 5.
