CHARLESTON, W.Va. — Two men who allegedly killed a Charleston teenager earlier this year are scheduled to go on trial in September.

D.J. Carter, 18, of South Charleston, and Mark Gaddy, 23, of Detroit, were indicted last week on murder charges in the death of Tymel McKinney. The 18-year-old was shot and killed on the front porch of his West Side home in April.

Police have said the death of McKinney as a gang hit.

Carter and Gaddy pleaded not guilty Thursday and the case was scheduled for a Sept. 8 trial.

    Hey Gary do you feel the same way when a drunk driver uses a car (or as you say instrument of death) and kills a family?

    Gary Karstens---to you and your snarky comments, I say:
    Give it a rest. Watch TV, read a book, work a puzzle or better yet, try the Rubik's Cube, that should keep you occupied for decades.

    A few stories back an elderly man was killed by a criminal with hammer. Hammers are instruments of death. When will it all end? An elderly man. . . YEESH!

    Does Black on Black murders qualify as "Hate Crimes" or are they "Love Crimes"?
