18-year-olds Jesse Wright and Steven Morrow were charged with two counts of homicide, two counts of armed robbery, and four counts of possession of a firearm in commission of a crime in connection with the May 20 deaths of 19-year-old Cameron Duckworth and 16-year-old Drake Mancuso.

Their bodies were found by White Lake Township Police after officers were called to the Cedarbrook Estates Mobile Home Park on a report of an unresponsive person near the pond. They had reportedly each been shot several times.

In court last week, a third teen testified that Morrow confessed he had a gun and planned to rob Duckworth, and that Mancuso was then killed in the process of that robbery along with Duckworth.

If convicted, the suspects face life in prison with no chance for parole.
