NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) — Two New Haven teenagers charged in the 2014 slaying of a 16-year-old boy have had their cases moved to adult court.

Police said a 17-year-old boy shot Torrence “T.J.” Gamble in the head on April 3, 2014 in New Haven. That teen is charged with murder and conspiracy.

An 18-year-old man, who was 17 at the time, and 23-year-old John Helwig of Milford are charged with conspiracy to commit murder. Police believe Helwig was the getaway driver.

The New Haven Register (http://bit.ly/1O6K7jR ) reports that the teens have joined Helwig as co-defendants in Superior Court. All three have pleaded not guilty.
