Lindsay Thurmond, 27, of Detroit, and Quenton Goston, 29, of Melvindale, have been charged with felony murder and first-degree murder, according to a press release from the Wayne County Prosecutor's Office. Both men were arraigned Friday and remanded to jail.

Prosecutors say Thurmond and Goston allegedly robbed Salami, owner of Lama's Florist.

A probable cause conference is scheduled for Sept. 29.
