4 teen suspects extradited from SC to Tennessee

Posted: Updated:

NEWBERRY, S.C. (AP) - The four Tennessee teens who led South Carolina police on a 10-hour chase last week have been extradited.

Authorities say the teens arrived in Greene County, Tenn., on Tuesday night.

Prosecutors are considering whether to seek to transfer their cases into adult court. A hearing is scheduled for Friday.

The 16-year-old boy, 16-year-old girl and two 15-year-old boys waived extradition during a hearing in South Carolina earlier this week. The 16-year-old boy is accused of killing his 36-year-old father and faces first-degree murder charges in Tennessee.

The other three teens face theft and accessory after the fact to murder charges.

The Associated Press is not identifying the suspects because they are juveniles. The AP also is not identifying the victim in order to protect the juveniles' identities.
