ADEL, Ga. (WALB) - Three people, including a 16-year-old, were charged with murder in connection to the deaths of two Adel men, according to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI).

Shamar Wilson, 19, Gerome Pickett, 17, and the 16-year-old were each charged with two counts of felony murder and two counts of aggravated assault in connection to the deaths of Quinten Payne, 34, and Cody Robinson, 29.

Payne was found dead with gunshot wounds in the 300 block of N Adams Street in Dec. 2019. Robinson was taken to the hospital with gunshot wounds but later died.
