Emily Starnes and Consandra Tyree were arrested on Saturday afternoon and, today, the teenagers are being held without bond at the Catawba County Jail.

Both teens were charged with felony counts of murder, robbery with firearms and conspiracy to commit robbery in relation to the stabbing death of taxi driver Adam Williams.

“In North Carolina, for criminal court purposes, when you’re 16, you’re treated as an adult,” Whisnant said. “The possibility exists of life in prison, but it’s still early to tell.”
