Three Northeast Baltimore men have been indicted on charges of first-degree murder and attempted robbery in the fatal shooting of a Mount Vernon restaurant owner, city prosecutors said yesterday.

Jamaha Eason, 18, and Kion Eason, 20, brothers who live in the 4600 block of Marx Ave., and Derrick Quarles, 20, of the 3800 block of Echodale Ave. were charged in the Feb. 5 killing of John P. Darda, a co-owner of City Cafe at West Eager and Cathedral streets.

Darda, 43, was shot on the way to the bank to deposit $3,000 in weekend receipts. The men will be arraigned June 8, prosecutors said.
