COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Emotions were running high in Recorder’s Court Thursday morning for three Columbus teens charged in a man's murder.

Samuel Jones, 17, and Tramal Williams, 17, were booked into the Muscogee County Jail Wednesday. They're both facing murder charges. Tyler Teal,19, was also charged with aggravated assault. 

“There’s no evidence he participated in the event in which resulted in the victim’s death,” says Attorney for Tyler Teal, Stacey Jackson.

A shocking moment happened in court when Jones’ sister fell out during the hearing and some of the people in the room were removed from court. However, she did continue to plead her brother's case.

"I know this much Sam Jones didn’t have anything to do with murdering anybody he’s just not capable of it and he didn’t do it,” says Attorney for Sam Jones, Mark Shelnutt.

All three men pleaded not guilty to murder and the other for aggravated assault in the case of Jakorbin King's death. The judge granted 17-year old Tyler Teal a $15,000 bond while the other two were not eligible for bond. 

Authorities involved with the case say all three men admitted to the April 29 robbery happening the day before the murder at the same location on the 30.

A detective goes on to say Samuel Jones admitted to taking his father’s gun that was later recovered at the scene, however Jones attorney says the evidence doesn’t line up to convict his client,  “the gun that was lost earlier was not the one involved with the homicide,” says Shelnutt. 

Detectives also claim cell phone evidence shows Williams set up a deal to buy marijuana from King  and later that day is when the alleged robbery happening on April 29 the murder taking place on the 30.

Family members of King were also in the court room seeking justice for their lost loved one. 

“They took a life that they cant get back and they really hurt our family really tremendously bad,” says King's aunt Mary Russell.

All cases are being bound over to Superior Court.

    More than half of the 17 people killed when a tourist boat sank on a Branson lake were members of the same Indiana family, and they likely wouldn't have been on the ill-fated trip but for a ticket mix-up.
