Two Springfield men face murder charges after being indicted Thursday in the stabbing death of 59-year old James Goins back in May.

27-year old Raymond McBride and 18-year old Christopher Coleman also face armed robbery charges.

Goins’ body  was found behind Club Station House May 26th.  His vehicle was later found at Quest Inn on the city’s east side.

They are scheduled to be arraigned August 4th.  Both could spend 60 years in prison if they are convicted.  The men are being held in the Sangamon County jail on unrelated charges, according to State’s Attorney John Milhiser.
