FIRST ON WITN: Grand Jury Indicts 14 Year Old In Triple Murder Case

A Pitt County grand jury indicted a 14-year-old for the deaths of three convenience store workers.

Earlier this month a judge ruled that Raekwon Blount would be charged as an adult in the case. The teen's attorney decided not to appeal that ruling.

The grand jury on Monday indicted the teen on three counts of first degree murder, three counts of first degree kidnapping and one count of robbery with a dangerous weapon.

Blount is one of four people charged with the April 1st murders of Nabil Al'mogannahi, Mokbel Almujanhi and David Alawi at the Hustle Mart, outside of Farmville. The others charged in the case, Antwan Anthony of Bethel, Willie Whitehead of Pinetops, and Xavier Shamble of Farmville could face the death penalty if convicted. Because of his age, the 14-year-old is not eligible for the death penalty.

Blount's mother, Valerie, was charged after the shooting with contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

The teen remains in a juvenile detention center.
