MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - A 19-year-old man has been charged in the fatal shooting of a Tennessee grocery store clerk during a robbery.
The Shelby County district attorney's office said Wednesday that Ronald Lauderdale Jr. has been indicted on first-degree murder and attempted robbery charges in the death of 36-year-old Marcel Wicks in November.
Officials say a 17-year-old co-defendant is being held in juvenile court. A hearing to determine if the teen can be transferred to adult court is pending.
Investigators said the teens are responsible for the death of Wicks, a clerk at Brothers Grocery in the Whitehaven community in Memphis.
Lauderdale is being held without bond. Online court records do not show if he has a lawyer.Copyright 2018 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.
