GRANITE CITY, IL (KMOX) – A 14-year-old boy is accused of killing a Granite City man.
Mylan Newbern is charged with first-degree murder, burglary, and attempted armed robbery.
Madison County States Attorney Tom Gibbons says the event in question occurred last November when 54-year-old Charles Weiss was returning home and was confronted by Newbern and three others. Gibbons alleges Newbern shot Weiss while attempting to rob him.
Newbern was originally charged as a juvenile, but yesterday, was transferred to adult criminal court. He is being held without bond.
