RICHMOND, Va. – A 16-year-old Richmond boy was indicted on murder charges in connection to the killing of eight-year-old Marty Cobb in May.
According to WTVR, a grand jury indicted Mairese Washington Monday on charges of second-degree murder, malicious wounding and strangulation, according to court records.
Cobb was killed May 1 along Brandon Road near his South Richmond home.
Family members said he was defending his 12-year-old sister from Washington when the teen then attacked Marty.
Washington was arrested two days later in connection with the homicide.
In June, a judge ruled Washington would be tried as an adult.
