EL PASO, Texas (AP) — Two Fort Bliss soldiers have been arrested and charged in the killing of a 16-year-old boy in El Paso County.
Twenty-year-old Tyler Shane Hall and 25-year-old Eric Duvall were arrested and charged Wednesday with murder in the death of Michael Anthony Tapia. Tapia’s body was found around 5 p.m. Sunday in Montana Vista.
Court documents say Tapia was killed Jan. 26 in a drug-related incident. An autopsy says that Tapia suffered a single gunshot wound to the back of the neck.
It is unclear if either man has an attorney. Bond has been set for both men at $1 million.
Fort Bliss officials declined to comment on the case.
