ALBANY, GA (WALB) - An Albany teenager took the stand in his murder trial Wednesday and testified that his ex-girlfriend's young son was killed by four men during a botched dope deal.

18-year old Vincent Soilberry testified that he took 3-year old Shondarius Roney with him in May when he went to sell fake crack cocaine.

Soilberry told the jury that a man called "Black" attacked him because Soilberry was selling dope on his turf, then three other men jumped him.

He said Black was the person who beat Roney.

The little boy died from a ruptured liver, fractured ribs, and other internal injuries.

The murder trial is expected to go to the jury tomorrow.
