HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

An 18-year-old man charged with attempted murder will not be tried as a youthful offender.

Thursday morning, a judge denied the motion from Marrell Newman's attorneys.

Prosecutors said Newman broke into an apartment on Newson Road in August, armed with a pistol. Two men inside fought back. The intruder fired some gunshots, but missed.

Investigators said the men held Newman down until police arrived. He is charged with attempted murder, assault and robbery.
