Marietta, GA (AP) - Cobb County authorities say a teen accused
of beating a 94-year-old man during a September robbery will be
tried as an adult.
Cobb County District Attorney's spokeswoman Kathy Watkins says a
juvenile court judge ruled this week that 15-year-old James Glover
will go to Superior Court on charges of armed robbery, aggravated
battery, aggravated assault, burglary and violation of the gang
Authorities say Glover entered Paul Smallwood's home, hit him
repeatedly with a rock and took his wallet and cell phone.
Smallwood suffered severe head injuries in the incident.
An 11-year-old has been charged as an accomplice in the
incident, but he will not be tried as an adult.
Glover had previously not been named by authorities because he
was charged as a juvenile.
