(Newser) – A man and a woman have been busted in the shotgun murder of MTV producer Gabriel Ben-Meir, 30, outside his Los Angeles home earlier this week. Another man killed a week earlier has also been linked to the pair. Ben-Meir's wallet was missing when police examined his body, raising speculation that his killing was linked to a series of shotgun robberies, sources have told ABC News. Jabaar Vincent Thomas, 26, and Destiny Young, 29, are being held without bail, and will likely be charged with murder today. Ben-Meir coordinated music for MTV programs, including Ashton Kutcher's Punk'd.
