Parents speak out after teen arrests in Chris Lane homicide

Duncan- The parents of two Duncan teens arrested in connection with Chris Lane's homicide are speaking out.

Stephens County prosecutors plan to file formal charges against the 16-and-15 year-old boys, as well as a 17-year-old boy ion Tuesday. Police say the 17-year-old confessed they targeted Lane while he was jogging because they were bored and wanted to kill.

Jennifer Luna refuses to believe her 16-year-old-son, Duncan High School sophomore - Chancey Luna is the triggerman. "They said it happened at 3 pm. I get off of work at 3 and it just takes me 5 minutes to get to the house and he was at home," said Jennifer Luna. She says her son did get into a black car that police say was involved in the homicide, but it was after it happened.

Another man says his 15-year-old son, James Edwards the second is also innocent because he says he's not that type of person. "He said dad I love you and I didn't have nothing to do with it, says James Edwards.

 

Again the three teenage suspects are expected to be formally charged Tuesday. The district attorney is deciding whether to charge them as adults or juveniles.
