North Carolina police have charged an ex-convict and a woman with murder in a fatal Steak `n Shake robbery attempt.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police said that 30-year-old Eddie Doh also was charged with attempted murder, assault and armed robbery. They say more charges could come once he's released from the hospital, where he was brought after police shot him.

The department said in a news release Thursday that 26-year-old Kiara Monique Murphy was arrested Wednesday in connection with the shooting that killed 48-year-old employee Darnell Harris and wounded 53-year-old Robert Carpenter Jr.

Steak `n Shake employees told news outlets a masked man entered the restaurant and began firing Tuesday.

The Charlotte Obersver reports Doh previously pleaded guilty to accessory after the fact to first-degree murder in 2013 and was released in January after spending years in prison.
