Three people were indicted on charges relating to a burned body found in Dallas in December.

Alberto Julian Lopez, 19, and LaKevian Grant, 20, were indicted on capital murder charges.

Teilor Johnson, 19, was indicted on an aggravated assault with a deadly weapon charge.

Wyatt's body was found on Dec. 10 in a vacant field located at 8100 Mayforge Drive. Dallas Fire-Rescue determined that Wyatt died from homicidal violence.

According to Dallas police, officers arrested Grant and Johnson on Dec. 18 after determining that they played a role in Wyatt's disappearance and murder.

Accomplices told police that Wyatt was supposed to visit the 4000 block of Maryland Avenue, and that Grant texted Lopez to let him know that Wyatt would be at the location in the next 20 minutes, according to arrest warrant affidavit.

According to police documents, Lopez originally told Grant that information about Wyatt's location would be worth $600.

A witness told police they saw two people wearing ski masks forcing a man thought to be Wyatt into the trunk of a car at gunpoint, shooting him once, closing the trunk and driving away from Maryland Avenue, the affidavit stated.

Witnesses reported seeing a black Dodge Charger drive by just before Wyatt was taken. Detectives later saw a vehicle that matched that description at Lopez's home, the affidavit stated.

Grant, Johnson and Lopez were transported to Dallas Police Headquarters for interviews, during which all waived their Miranda Rights and gave voluntary statements, police said.

Bail was set at $500,000 for Lopez and $600,000 for Johnson and Grant, according to jail records.
