MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - A prosecutor says two men were arrested in Tennessee on murder charges in the death of a 6-year-old boy who was inside his house getting ready to go to a birthday party.

Shelby County District Attorney General Amy Weirich said in a news release that Ronnekio Johnson and James Murphy were arrested Thursday by Memphis police after being indicted in the death of Aison Golden. Johnson and Murphy are both 27.

They were also charged with attempted murder, assault, reckless endangerment and firearms charges. The release said witnesses reported seeing Johnson and Murphy on April 11 fire shots into at least two homes.
