AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) - A teenager is charged with killing a man, who was found dead in the parking lot of an apartment complex.

The Augusta Chronicle (https://bit.ly/1DMeFCB ) reports that a statement from Richmond County Sheriff’s Lt. Allan Rollins says 17-year-old Joshua Derrell Mormant is charged with felony murder.

Deputies arrested Mormant after responding to a disturbance at River Glen Apartments early Tuesday morning. Authorities say they found a dead man in the parking lot who appeared to have been beaten.

Officials also charged 40-year-old Sharon Denise Pinkney with misdemeanor obstruction in connection with the homicide investigation.

It is unclear if either defendant has a lawyer.
