AL Supreme Court may look into juvenile capital murder case

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) -

The Alabama State Supreme Court is expected to get involved in a Jefferson County capital murder case involving three juvenile suspects. The court will hear arguments on the constitutionality of sentencing for the teens.

The suspects are accused of killing five people at an Ensley home, in January of last year. Two of those suspects, Rashad Stoves and Larry Henderson, are both fighting to have their capital murder indictments dismissed. Stoves was 16 and Henderson was 17 during the crime.

A capital murder conviction would play a role in the suspects getting life sentences, if they are convicted.
