Krystal's Murders: 1 year later

DECATUR, AL (WAFF) -

It's been one year since two employees at a Krystal's restaurant in Decatur were murdered, but the case still isn't closed.

The three suspects accused of the murders are still awaiting trial.

Lawyers for two of the suspects are now trying to get their clients' indictments dismissed.

The murders happened in the early morning hours of August 24, 2011 at the Krystal's restaurant on 6th Avenue in Decatur.

The body of 50-year-old Jeff Graff was found laying outside the store's walk-in cooler. 23-year-old Jesse Aguilar was found dead inside the cooler. They were both shot multiple times.

Investigators determined the motive as robbery.

Two of the suspects were employees of the restaurant.

Jordaan Creque, Cassandra Eldred, and Ezekiel Gholston are each facing three counts of murder.
