NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- A teenager told a 911 operator that he didn't know who was responsible for the New Year's Day shooting deaths of his foster mother and her mother-in-law in their White Bluff home.
According to the tape released Monday, 15-year-old Jeffery Byrd Johnson Jr. calmly told the operator that someone was in the home. Johnson and 17-year-old James Earl Garrett are charged with first-degree murder in the slayings that occurred in the small town about 30 miles west of Nashville.
The teens were living in a foster home belonging to Mary Clark at the time. Clark and her mother-in-law, Gail Clark, were found shot to death in the house.
The teens are in custody awaiting a hearing on Feb. 18.
