    DENISON, TX -- "I recycle,” said Vincent Shores, Denison resident. “Pretty much anything I have in the house that's recyclable, I recycle it.” Recycling hasn't always been an option for people who live in Denison, but last year the city started a new program that offers curbside pick-up. "I just need about two or three more bins actually,” said Shores. “I have to borrow my neighbor's." "I love it,” said Tammy Ford of Denison, “I would have never done it if it wasn't right at my curb side, I...More >>

DUNCAN, OK-- Oklahoma prosecutors have charged two teenage boys with first-degree murder in the random killing of an Australian baseball player as he jogged.

Family members of one of the three teens involved in the murder of a 22-year-old ECU student were shocked to hear the charges.

16-year-old Chancey Luna was charged with first degree murder as investigators believe he was the one that pulled the trigger, killing Chris Lane.

Luna's mother Jennifer, burst into tears in the court room as the judge read the charges

15-year-old James Edwards Jr., a passenger in the vehicle was also charged with first degree murder.
     
"He didn't pull the trigger for number one, he was just there. Instead of charging him with murder, they could've charged him with accessory to the crime," said James Edward Sr., father of suspect.
 

17-year-old Michael Jones was charged with two felony counts of discharging a weapon and being an accessory to murder after the fact.

District attorney Jason Hicks said in all the years he's lived and worked in Stephens County, he's at a loss for words at this tragedy.

"This not something that we see happen here and I'm going to do everything that I can to ensure that we see these three thugs pay for what they did to Christopher Lane."

 The sister of one of the teens said she's upset over the way the D.A portrayed her brother.

"He was a good kid, he was good to the people, he got along with just about everyone, he was in wrestling, he was in football, and he had a good heart," said Rachel Padilla, Sister of James Edwards Jr.

The D.A did not say whether the shooting was gang related, but Edwards's sister believes it was.

All three teens remain in custody, two were denied bond expect for the 17 year old who's bond was set for $1,000,000. The first two teens are expected to appear in court October 16th and the third teen on October 2nd.
