WSBT 22

Two men are now being charged in a double murder case from St. Joseph County.

27-year-old Benito Pedraza and 29-year-old Jesus Pedraza were charged and arrested in connection to the deaths of Anton James and Damon Bethel.

Police say it happened August 2 on Fredrickson Street. Court documents say the shootings happened after a sham drug deal.

Police say a large amount of meth was going to be stolen.

They say that turned into a shootout with at least 50 shots fired.

Benito has been charged with three counts of Murder and one count of Attempted Robbery, a Level 5 Felony.

Jesus has been charged with two counts of Murder and one count of Attempted Robbery, a Level 5 Felony.

Both men are being kept at the St. Joseph County Jail without bond.

They are scheduled to appear before a judge Thursday afternoon at 1 p.m. for arraignment.
