Two men have been charged in the killing of a U.S. Coast Guardsman whose crew was chasing a vessel suspected of being laden with drugs off the California coast.

Jose Meija Leyva and Manuel Beltran Higuera were charged Monday in Los Angeles with killing a federal officer while the officer was on duty. They are in custody and were expected to appear in court later Monday.

The men are charged in the killing of 34-year-old Chief Petty Officer Terrell Horne, who died Sunday after he was struck in the head by the suspect vessel near the Channel Islands, west of Los Angeles.
