UPDATE: Wednesday, December 5, 2012

The man accused of killing two people at a Wichita Dollar General store has been charged with capital murder.

Wednesday afternoon, 19-year-old Marquis Marshall made his first appearance at Sedgwick County District Court where charges were officially filed.

Marshall is accused of killing 22-year-old Zachary Hunt, a store employee, and 79-year-old Henry Harvey, who police say was at the counter making a purchase when he was killed. Both men were shot multiple times.

Marshall remains jailed on a $5 million bond, increased from $1 million.

Marshall's brother, 20-year-old Marlon Brown is facing related charges of aiding and abetting a felon.

Because Marshall was charged with capital murder, he could face the death penalty if convicted. In court, Marshall was appointed an attorney from the Death Penalty Defense Unit.
