  Original Published: 8/21/2013 A random act of violence in Oklahoma has left an Australian man dead, now three teens are facing charges. 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. Police say when the teens were arrested, one offered a motive that made it clear that Lane was chosen at random. A judge has set bond at $1-million for Jones, while no bond was set for Edwards and Luna.
