ALBANY, GA (WALB) - An Albany teenager accused of killing his girlfriend's son, says the little boy was actually killed by drug dealers.

18 year old Vincent Soilberry says he didn't beat three year old Shondarius Roney to death.

Soilberry says the confession he gave police wasn't true.  That what really happened last May was that he was selling drugs and the men buying them thought they were fake, so they beat the child.

He said he then went back home and called 911 saying the little boy drowned.

Testimony in the trial continues tomorrow.
