The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported Tuesday that a grand jury has indicted 21-year-olds Terrance Crumley and Curtis Fortenberry on capital murder charges. Prosecutors have not said whether they'll seek the death penalty against the Fort Worth men.

Hidic, of Fort Worth, was fatally shot on June 28. A resident called 911 after finding Hidic's body outside his home. Police initially were not sure of the circumstances of the death.

Investigators later determined Hidic apparently was caught in the crossfire in the attempted home robbery. A man at the residence told police he exchanged gunfire with a male suspect.

According to the Star-Telegram, police said Hidic is believed to be the mastermind behind the robbery, recruiting the two men with the promise of quick money. The alleged plan called for the two men to pretend that Hidic was a hostage.
