DEKALB COUNTY, AL (WAFF) - Two young DeKalb County men are seeking youthful offender status for the capital murder of a man last year.

20-year-old Billy Ray Justice of Blountsville and 17-year-old Richard Sharp Shelton of Boaz made the request in an arraignment hearing on Monday.

Investigators say the pair shot and killed 63-year-old Jerry Neal Burt to death in his home near Asbury then set the home on fire to cover the crime scene.
