GWINNETT COUNTY, Ga. - Four men have been indicted in connection with the murder of a Gwinnett County teen.

Police believe 14-year-old Paul Sampleton Jr. was gunned down over high-end sneakers at his home on Haynescrest Drive on Dec. 19. His father discovered him bound and gagged.

Earlier this year, three suspects were arrested. Larnell Sillah, 15, faces felony murder, armed robbery and other charges. Achiel Morgan, 15, and Romaine Stewart, 18, are charged with armed robbery and burglary. The teens are being charged as adults.

In addition to the shoes, the trio also stole clothing, televisions, an iPad and a computer, according to this week’s indictment.

The indictment also lists a fourth suspect, Anthony Lamar English, who police believe received the stolen items and lied about it. English is charged with theft by receiving stolen property, false statements and writings, and marijuana possession.
