HUNTSVILLE, Tex. (KBTX) - Two men have been charged with the murder of a man whose body was found in a burning vehicle in Walker County.

This week, a Walker County grand jury handed up the indictments for Wilver Flores, 20, and Franklin Platero-Rodriquez, 21. The Walker County Sheriff's Office said both men are gang members from the Houston area. They said the two men murdered Juan Cedillos in March over a gang-related dispute. His body was found in a burned vehicle on the side of Interstate 45 near FM 2989.

Prosecutors said surveillance video from a Huntsville gas station put both men in the area at the time of the murder. Platero-Rodriquez and Flores face up to 99 years in prison.
