DETROIT (AP) - Two men have been indicted in the fatal shooting of two people in Detroit last December, charges that could make them eligible for the federal death penalty.

A 21-year-old man and a 13-year-old girl were killed while inside a parked car.

Edwin Mills and Carlo Wilson were charged in an indictment that was unsealed Wednesday. Prosecutors say they belong to a gang called Six Mile Chedda Grove. “Chedda” is slang for drug money and a reference to Cedargrove Street, which is considered gang territory.

The 26-year-old Mills and 22-year-old Wilson are accused of firing into the car, killing two. U.S. Attorney Barbara McQuade says the “utter disregard for human life … is simply unacceptable.”

It wasn’t immediately known if Mills and Wilson have attorneys yet.
