HILLSBOROUGH, N.C. (WNCN) — The 17-year-old charged with killing 14-year-old Lyric Woods and 18-year-old Devin Clark is expected in court Tuesday.
Issiah Ross is accused of killing the two teens in September in Orange County.
CBS 17 previously reported that in September, the bodies of 14-year-old Lyric Woods and 18-year-old Devin Clark were found in a wooded area off Buckhorn Road in western Orange County by two ATV riders.
Ross, although 17, is being tried as an adult for the killings and made his first court appearance in November. Family members of the victims also attended that court appearance.
In November, the district attorney shared about what to expect as the case moves through the court system.
“Trying cases — any cases — in court take time. and murder cases especially; so I think I would ask patience. I can’t pinpoint a time on that. This case well eventually be heard in court and the evidence — the state has on the case — will come out in court,” Orange/Chatham District Attorney Jeff Nieman previously said.
Ross is expected in court at 3 p.m. Tuesday. Check back here for updates.
