Flint boy, 13, charged with murder in fatal shooting of brother, 22, his girlfriend, 28
Genesee County Prosecutor David Leyton says boy will be tried as adult
A 13-year-old Flint boy has been charged with murder in the shooting deaths of his 22-year-old brother and the brother's 28-year-old girlfriend.
Genesee County Prosecutor David Leyton tells MLive.com that the boy is being held at the Genesee Valley Detention Center. Leyton says the teen will be tried as an adult in juvenile court.
If convicted, the boy could serve an adult prison sentence after turning 21 should a judge decide he should remain behind bars.
Police say they found Kareem B. Walters and Alexis Frazier in a house on Flint's west side about 4:40 a.m. Sunday. They say Walters died at the scene and Frazier died at a hospital.
