Prosecutors have charged two men with capital murder in the slaying and robbery of a 28-year-old Texas pastor in his church.

The Tarrant County District Attorney's Office charged Steven Lawayne Nelson and Anthony Gregory Springs on Monday in the Thursday slaying of the Rev. Clint Dobson at the NorthPointe Baptist Church in Arlington.

The defendants also were charged with attempted capital murder in the robbery and beating of one of Dobson's assistants.

Police say tips from the public led to the defendants' arrests.
