GRAYSON, Ga. - The mother of a Grayson teenager charged in connection to a homicide over sneakers said her son would never have planned this crime.
On Monday, Channel 2's Kerry Kavanaugh obtained the arrest warrants that indicate all three suspects live on the same street, Farmstead Court.
"My son basically would not plan or murder anyone because I taught them better than that," Windsome Stewart told Kavanaugh.
She said she learned her son had been charged in connection to a homicide on the news.
Police charged Larnell Sillah, 15, with murder in the case.
Investigators said the deadly armed robbery was over high-end sneakers.
Sampleton, 15, who was a freshman at Grayson High School, was well known for his high-priced shoe collection.
Police said he was involved in the
Police said an afternoon in December, Paul was attacked after school.
He was shot and killed inside his home on Haynescrest Court, about a half-mile from the neighborhood where all three suspects live.
"I understand the mother is in pain. I feel it for her too and I would like for justice," Stewart said. "Not my son. For my son to be dragged into this is not fair."
Stewart said her son and the other two suspects hung out and made music, that's all.
Friday, Kavanaugh spoke to Sampleton's mother, Stephanie Stone. She was devastated to learn the people now in jail are just teenagers themselves.
"It is sad that you got three young black men that are going to spend the rest of their lives behind bars, or whatever may come for them over material things," said Stone.
The two 15-year-old suspects have been charged as adults. All of the suspects are expected in court next week.
Kavanaugh reached out the families of the other two suspects, but they declined to comment.
