The grand jury charged Tracy Lamont Lindsey, 15; Joseph Lashun Jordan, 18; Rufus Khalid-Durand Van, 16; and Artavious Sylvester Feazell, 19; with murder, armed robbery and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime, according to the indictment.

Investigators said Luckey was sitting on a couch at his 2832 Hoods Lane residence when he was shot through a kitchen window with a 9mm handgun about 11:30 p.m. on May 6.

The teens then entered his home and took two lockboxes. Before leaving, they again shot Luckey, who lay bleeding but alive.

Luckey's housekeeper previously had mentioned to her cousin, Feazell, that her employer, who relied on a oxygen tank and suffered heart problems, had a lot of money around the house.

Authorities have said they believe the teens had been planning to rob Luckey for about a week.

At a hearing in May in which bond was denied for three of the teens, Assistant District Attorney Pittman Morris said much of the authorities' information has come from Jordan.

Jordan was pulled over by deputies and questioned about 40 minutes after the slaying, Morris said.

In interviews with police, Jordan has admitted that he was the one who killed Luckey, Morris said.

"Jordan says he shot him through the window and shot him a second time," Morris said.

"The four teens shot and killed Luckey May 6 during a robbery of his residence at 2832 Hoods Lane."

Hmm.... So, they've been found guilty before trial, huh?

Einstein if you will read it

Einstein if you will read it again it says. " the four teens are accused in the shooting and killing of Luckey May 6 during a robbery of his residence at 2932 Hoods Lane" It clearly states that they are accused and not that they are guilty...but if found guilty I hope they are punished to the fullest extent of the law! It is a shame that this poor man lives 81 years only to be gunned down in his own home that he paid for by a bunch of thugs

These poor poor disadvantaged

These poor poor disadvantaged down-troddened youths should be released. It is NOT their fault. This was only redistribution of wealth. The 81 year old had the money and these youths decided it belonged to them. The blame clearly falls on the old man for having TOO much. At some point,you have enough money.

So sad. Am very sorry for Mr. Luckey and his family. As for the accused, if they are guilty, I hope they never set foot out off prison again for the rest of their sorry lives.
