Fremont Teens Potentially Charged as Adults
Fremont County prosecutors say two teenagers held in the bike trail slaying of a man and beating of a woman could be charged as adults. Prosecutor Michael Bennett intends to charge the boys - ages 15 and 16 - as adults. Both teens face second degree murder and attempted second degree murder charges in the Sept. 4 death of 25-year-old David Ronald Moss Jr., and beating of Aleeah Crispin. They were found together on the Rails to Trails pathway north of Riverton. Fremont County undersheriff Ryan Lee says Crispin remains in critical condition at a Casper hospital. Documents show that the teens were arrested after the 16-year-old spoke about the crime. Authorities say he later confessed to police.
