Marietta Police charged four teenagers in the robbery that led to the retaliation murder of 18-year-old Marqise Carruthers, Marietta Police Public Information Officer David Baldwin said.
Demetres Plasencio, 18, Jordan Billinsly, 18, and a 16-year-old were arrested and charged with robbery. Samario Koger, 19, was charged with robbery but remains at-large.
On Saturday, Sept. 28, police responded to the Cobb Community Transport (CCT) Terminal parking lot, near the area of South Marietta Parkway and Aviation Road, for a report of an unconscious person in a grassy area near the road, Baldwin said.
Carruthers was discovered with a single knife wound to the chest, Baldwin said. Carruthers was rushed to Kennestone Hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.
An investigation revealed that an altercation had occurred between the victim and two others at another location and ended near the CCT parking lot.
