VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

Two teenagers are facing felony murder charges in connection with an October 30, homicide in Valdosta.

Valdosta police said a 14 and a 16-year-old have been charged with felony murder. A 15-year-old has also been charged with armed robbery.

All three arrests are in connection the murder of Sedric Williams at Arbor Trace Apartments on East Park Avenue.

Quenton McGee, 18, turned himself in on October 31 and was charged with felony murder, but police didn't stop looking into the case.

On Monday, detectives said they got a tip that led them to charge the 16 and 14-year-olds. They were both taken into custody on Tuesday.

The 15-year-old's parents took their child to the police department Wednesday morning.

The three teens have been turned over to the Department of Juvenile Justice.

Lieutenant Adam Bembry stated how three teenage lives are essentially over if tried and convicted of these crimes.

"This year we've been preaching it and having meetings on it, talked to city council members about it, we've talked to everybody about the activities of juveniles and this is as bad as it gets, not only do you have a 21-year-old that's been murder but you've now got three children as you said their lives are ruined," said Bembry.
