WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A teenager will be tried as an adult in the fatal shootings of a Wichita couple during a robbery.
The Wichita Eagle reports that Sedgwick County juvenile court Judge Robb Rumsey granted a motion Wednesday for adult prosecution for Carlos Delacadena-Edwards. He is jailed in Sedgwick County on two counts of first-degree murder and one count of aggravated robbery.
His attorney, Denise Donnelly-Mills, didn’t immediately return a phone message from The Associated Press.
Delacadena-Edwards was 17 in October when 72-year-old Godofredo Moreno and his 71-year-old wife, Martha, were killed. A police affidavit said the teen, who is now 18, admitted going to the house with another suspect. The affidavit says the other suspect shot the couple multiple times while Delacadena-Edwards waited in the living room with a BB gun.
