Juvenile Charged With Murder
The juvenile charged with murder for a deadly shooting in the Mount Vernon community Tuesday made court appearance in DeKalb County today. A judge heard from Deputy District Attorney Bob Johnston about the events that took place which resulted in the death of Kelena Hicks. Attorney Robert Ray was appointed to represent the juvenile and Matt Green will serve as his guardian during the upcoming proceedings. The judge ruled there was enough evidence to continue to hold the boy in custody. The State filed a motion for an order to certify the juvenile as an adult. The date for that hearing will be set sometime after August 1st. The boy is being held at a juvenile detention facility in Anniston.
