Two St. Charles police officers are recovering from injuries after they were hit by two armed robbers in their getaway car.

Two 18-year-old men are in custody. They are suspected of robbing a St. Charles Steak 'n Shake and then ramming two police cars while trying to escape.

It happened just before four Wednesday morning outside a Steak ‘N Shake on First Capitol Drive in St Charles. 

One officer was taken to the hospital and the other was treated at the scene.

More charges are expected later Wednesday.

Earlier this month, Oundre Akins was convicted for robbing a Steak 'n Shake restaurant and killing two employees in 2008. Today, a judge ensured that he will never set foot outside of prison.

The judge sentences Akins to consecutive life sentences for the murders. The death penalty was taken off the table after Akins agreed to waive a jury trial. Akins' brother Anthony goes to trial in July for allegedly helping his brother in the robbery and murders.

The trial of a man accused of murdering two Steak 'n Shake employees in November 2008 is underway.

23-year-old Oundre Akins allegedly killed the two employees during a robbery. Akins decided this week, to waive a jury trial and will allow the judge to decide his guilt or innocence. In exchange for that move, prosecutors took the death penalty off the table.

Prosecutors say Akins' brother, Anthony Akins was also involved in the crime. Anthony had murder charges reinstated after he refused to testify against his brother, and prosecutors plan to seek the death penalty is he is convicted.
