A Los Angeles court Tuesday charged two men who allegedly shot to death two Chinese graduate students with capital murder — a charge that could bring the death penalty.

The suspects allegedly killed Ming Qu and Ying Wu as the students sat in their car near the University of Southern California in April.

Police say the two were shot during a robbery.

The parents of the students are suing the university, saying the school misrepresented the area where the crime took place as safe.

About 2,500 Chinese students attend USC.
