MADISON COUNTY, AL (WAFF) - A Madison County man charged with murder will not get youthful offender status.

Today, Judge William Bell denied Jovontai Dickerson's request.

Dickerson and his twin sister, Jovonta, are charged with murder.

Authorities say they shot and killed Jarrod Lockett in December of 2012.

Investigators believe Lockett was running a fake prostitution website and Jovonta got angry when she didn't get paid.

Authorities say her brother confronted Lockett and shot him.

A trial date for the twins has not been set.
