Teen brothers indicted in murder of 16 year old

Tuesday, December 11, 2012

A grand jury has indicted two teens in the murder of a 16-year-old Millbrook High School student.

Brayan Hernandez and his brother Ceferino were 13 and 15 when Fernando Garibay-Benitez - a rising tenth grader - was gunned down in the 3800 block of Rolling Green Court on Aug. 15.

Police said Garibay- Benitez was walking home when the two other teens pulled up in a van and started shooting.

Police said gang activity may have been involved in the murder.

Witnesses testified that Brayan asked Garibay-Benitez what gang he was in. They said after Benitez answered, he was shot and killed.

The boys will continue be held in a juvenile facility while they await trial.

While the teens are to be tried as adults, they will not face possible death sentences if convicted because of their ages.
