QUAKERTOWN, Pa. (AP) - Four teenagers have been ordered held for trial in the shooting death of a man last fall in suburban Philadelphia during what investigators called a botched drug-related robbery.

The teens are charged as adults in Bucks County with homicide and conspiracy in the Oct. 29 killing of 19-year-old Iziah Ramon-Lewis in Perkasie.

But The Philadelphia Inquirer (https://bit.ly/2hPcZ4X ) reports that defense attorneys for two of the teens are seeking to have the cases moved to juvenile court.

Authorities allege in court documents that the defendants conspired to rob a drug dealer, but he was unavailable and put them into contact with Ramon-Lewis, so they tried to rob him. Prosecutors said he sped away but later got out of car and approached the teens to confront them but was shot.
