TEXARKANA, Texas --Two men have been indicted on murder charges by a Bowie County Grand Jury in connection with the March death of a Texarkana man.

Cedric Ballard, 52, and Darquales McHenry, 33, were indicted June 16, according to Bowie County court records. Both men remain in the Bowie County jail with bail set at $1 million each.

Johnny Robinson was found unresponsive on his couch at his home March 22 in the 500 block of Melton Street.

Robinson was taken to Wadley Regional Medical Center, where he died the next day. Due to the apparent nature of his injuries, police investigated the case as a suspicious death and sent Robinson's body to Dallas for an autopsy. Detectives learned that he died as a result of injuries sustained during an assault.

As the investigation progressed, it was determined that Ballard and McHenry allegedly conspired to attack Robinson over some type of disagreement that had with him.

Ballard allegedly paid McHenry to assault Robinson while he watched, according to court records.
