Three teens were charged in the slaying of a 12-year-old girl whose body was found by her grandfather in her home, authorities said Monday.
All three face charges of first-degree murder and breaking and entering in the shooting death of Emily Elizabeth Haddock, the Moore County Sheriff's Office said.
Van Roger Smith Jr., 16, Sherrod Nicholas Harrison, 19, and Michael Graham Currie, 18, all of Cameron, would be held without bond at the Moore County Detention Center, the sheriff's office said.
The jail and sheriff's department didn't have attorney information for the teens.
Haddock had stayed home from school with strep throat Friday. Her home near Vass was broken into and robbery appears to be the motive, authorities said.
Authorities believe they have recovered the .22-caliber pistol used in the shooting.
