March 23, 2019

TOLEDO, Ohio — Two 17-year-old boys have been charged with murder in the shooting death of a 16-year-old girl in Ohio.

Prosecutors in Toledo say the boys have been charged as juveniles, but they will ask a judge to transfer the case to adult court.

Police have said a social media dispute led to a fight and a shooting on March 11 that killed Alexia Carey. Her grandfather was grazed by a bullet.

Authorities say investigators think several people fired shots. A third teen and an adult also have been charged in connection with the dispute.

Carey was a student at Northwood High School near Toledo.
