Police say the trio shot and killed this man, Christopher Lane, while he was out jogging last week. Lane, who was a college baseball player, was just 22-years-old. James Edwards Junior who is 15, and Chaney Luna who is 16, are now charged as adults with first-degree murder. Michael Jones, who is 17, is facing two charges , use of a vehicle and discharge of a weapon and accessory after the fact to murder in the first-degree.
