Baton Rouge teen accused in fatal shooting of 18-year-old pleads not guilty
BATON ROUGE - On Tuesday, a Baton Rouge teen pleaded not guilty in connection with the fatal shooting of an 18-year-old whose body was dumped behind Olympia Stadium in June.
Jah'Marie Street, only 15-years-old when Davonta Deon London was killed, was indicted on a second-degree murder charge in September.
London was shot in the head and his body was left in the parking lot of BREC's Perkins Road Park in broad daylight.
A second-degree murder conviction could result in a term of life in prison without the possibility of parole for Street.
If found guilty on that charge, a sentencing hearing would have to be held to consider his youth and other factors.
Street is expected to return to court, March 9.
