TEMPLE (January 23, 2013)—Cedric Lilly, 17, was in the Bell County Jail Wednesday, charged with murder in a deadly shooting in November that happened when he was 16.

Lilly was transferred Tuesday to the jail from the Bell County Juvenile Detention Center where he’s been held since his arrest on Nov. 10 after a state district judge certified him to stand trial as an adult.

He was ordered held in lieu of $100,000 bond.
