Philadelphia Murder Trial Begins

The trial of nineteen year old Charles Meyers began yesterday in Philadelphia. Meyers is accused of fatally shooting fourteen year old Tykeem Law last year in an incident that some have attributed to road rage. Meyers was driving his car with one passenger when Law and four of his cousins were riding bikes in the street. Reportedly, Meyers and Law began to argue, Law agreed to move out of the street, and Meyers shot him in the chest.

Meyers is pleading self defense, claiming that Law said he had a weapon. The passenger in Meyers’ car denies this.

If you have been accused of murder, you will need to contact an excellent attorney right away. For more information on the self defense plea, contact Milwaukee murder defense attorneys Hart Powell, S.C. at (414) 271-9595.
