RICHMOND, Va. — A 16-year-old boy in Richmond was indicted on murder charges in connection with beating an 8-year-old boy to death, according to WTVR.

Marty Cobb, 8, was beaten to death while trying to save his 12-year-old sister from the teen, who attempted to rape her, on May 1.

A grand jury indicted Mairese Washington Monday on charges of second-degree murder, malicious wounding and strangulation, according to court records.

In June, a judge ruled Washington would be tried as an adult.
