CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Two teenagers charged in the murder of a college baseball player will be in court Thursday.
The fatal shooting of Zachary Finch happened nearly a year ago and both suspects are expected to enter a plea during their court appearance.
The family of Finch said if the two accused killers accept a plea deal, they will be able to confront them in court. If the pair rejects the deal, then the case will go to trial.
Finch was killed when he tried to buy a cellphone at an apartment complex in west Charlotte last June.
Police arrested 18-year-old Demonte McCain and 15-year-old Jah’zian Wilson and charged them both with murder.
Two of Wilson’s friends told investigators he was the one who shot Finch.
Both suspects are teens but are being tried as adults for first-degree murder.
The past 12 months have been extremely painful for Finch’s family. His mother has been coming to court every 10 days to make sure a judge does not let the two teens accused of killing her son out of jail.
They told Channel 9 that they will be in court again on Thursday, waiting to see if the case will finally come to a close.
Channel 9 will be inside the courtroom Thursday and will have every development on this case on Eyewitness News.
