Three Teens To Be Tried As Adults For Murder

Chicot Memorial

BALDWYN, MS (Ben Caxton) — Three teenage boys face adult capital murder charges in northeast Mississippi. Baldwyn police on Friday arrested Quindaris Burress, Dequan Stribling, and Jayce Bryson West, charging them in the October 23rd death of 70-year-old Henry Adams Jr. Burress and Stribling are 13, while West is 14. Under Mississippi law, anyone accused of a crime punishable by death or life imprisonment is automatically charged as an adult although a judge can later send such cases to youth court. Adams was found shot once in the chest at home with his wallet outside. All three are jailed on $1 million bails.
