CHICAGO (AP) - Murder charges have been filed against two men in connection with separate December shootings in Chicago’s South Shore community that left a church deacon and a musician dead.

Mark Hall and Devin Aldridge, both 23 years old, are each charged with two counts of first-degree murder in the deaths of 74-year-old Deacon Willie Cooper and 41-year-old blues guitarist Eric Davis.

Chicago police say both Davis and Cooper were sitting in parked vehicles when they were shot about 30 minutes apart in the early morning hours of Dec. 19. They were both pronounced dead at the scene.

Both and Hall and Aldridge are scheduled to appear in Cook County Circuit Court on Saturday.
