Two teenagers charged in connection with the October 10 murder of a Worcester man will be tried as juveniles.
Tatiana Febo, 17, of Downsville and Alexis Lotterman, 16, of Walton, will be tried in Otsego County Family Court, according to an order by Judge John Lambert.
Febo and Lotterman are charged with first-degree burglary.
Charged with first-degree burglary and second-degree murder are Dylan Robinson, 15, Nicholas Meridy, 32, Alexander Borgreen, 16, and Anais Soto, 17, all of Oneonta.
State Police said last month that Robinson, Meridy and Borgreen entered the Head Road home of Kenneth Robinson, 53, while Soto stood guard outside. All were believed to be armed.
Dylan Robinson shot Kenneth, his father, with a 30-.06, according to Otsego County District Attorney John Muehl, while Meridy fired a shotgun into the floor of the home.
Febo and Lotterman were waiting in a car outside the home, according to police.
Under New York’s new Raise the Age law, 16- and 17-year olds charged with felonies can have their cases heard in Family Court.
Lotterman’s family posted her $10,000 bail, and she was later released on her own recognizance. Febo was released to the custody of her parents.
Meridy is being held in the Otsego County Jail. Judge Lambert set bail at $25,000 cash and $50,000 bond for Robinson, Soto and Borgreen.
There are no appearance dates set.
