A Wake County judge said there was sufficient evidence to try a 16-year-old charged with first-degree murder as an adult in the murder of Regynald Brown in December.
The juvenile was transferred immediately to a detention center where he will be held under $1 million bond. The juvenile was ordered to not have any contact with other co-defendants or witnesses in the case.
"I will stand by my son no matter what and I am so glad a bond was set because I will get him home," said the mother in court Tuesday. "and I feel much better and confident knowing these boys will be tried as adults in superior court where they will have the chance to be defended better and more extensively."
