MADISON, AL (WAFF) - A Madison County woman will stand trial as an adult in connection with the murder of a man at a Huntsville apartment complex.

A judge denied youthful offender status for Javonta Dickerson.

She and her twin brother, Jovontai, are charged with the 2012 murder of Jarrod Lockett.

Investigators believe Lockett ran a fake prostitution website and Javonta got angry when she didn't get paid.

Authorities said her brother confronted Lockett and shot him.
