Prosecutors are expected to outline the robbery case against the mother and son during court appearances Friday before state District Judge Michael McSpadden.

They are accused of robbing a man at gunpoint outside of his Cypress Station-area apartment complex and taking his money and pick-up truck, according to court records.

During a magistrate hearing early Thursday, prosecutors said both Breauxs confessed to being involved in the June 23 robbery.

Ellen and Messiah Breaux remain in the Harris County Jail on $50,000 bail.
