Two Temple teenagers were indicted Wednesday for capital murder in connection with a shooting on March 19 in Temple that left a Copperas Cove teenager dead.

The Bell County Grand Jury handed up the indictments against Kevin Hambrick, Jr., 17, and Cash Le’Anthony Hilliard, 18.

Hambrick, who was 16 at the time of the deadly shooting, was arrested last month and certified to stand trial as an adult.

He was also indicted for aggravated robbery.

Savion Manuel, 19, was shot to death just after 2 p.m. on March 19 near the Saulsbury Apartments at the intersection of Saulsbury Drive and Betsy Ross Drive in Temple.

Officers attempted to perform CPR on Manuel, but were unable to revive him.

Investigators believed the motive for the shooting was robbery.

The suspects had arranged to meet the victim to buy a video game system he had advertised for sale, police said.

Hilliard and Hambrick remain in the Bell County Jail.

Hilliard’s bond is set at $1 million.

Hambrick’s bonds total $250,000.
