DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Authorities in Memphis, Tennessee, say they have arrested and obtained murder indictments for two men suspected in the January shooting death of an Iowa man traveling through the city.

Lonnie Ludvigson, of Edgewood, Iowa, was driving a truck for a shipping company when he stopped in Memphis on Jan. 9. Four masked men approached his truck, robbed him and shot him.

The Commercial Appeal in Memphis (https://bit.ly/298OKLd ) reports police have 18-year-old Devonta Vaughn in custody and 19-year-old DeMarco McKinley was arrested in Dallas and will be extradited to Memphis.

Police credit a CrimeStoppers tip.

Ludvigson was 48. His mother, Donna Ludvigson, says she’s relieved police have made progress in the investigation of her son’s death.

Attorney information for Vaughn and McKinley was not yet listed in online court records.
