Two Augusta teens arrested in the third homicide at River Glen Apartments in 2012 were indicted this week.

In an indictment returned by the Richmond County grand jury Tuesday, Demariye V. Glover, 17, and Rayshawn M. Ward, 16, are accused of murder in the Nov. 13 shooting death of Demetrius Moore, 21.

Although Ward was a juvenile at the time of Moore’s slaying, teens as young as 13 are tried as adults if charged with murder. At age 17, Glover is considered an adult in Georgia.

Both teens will be arraigned on the charges later this month.
