Trial delayed in case of Warner Robins boy accused of murder

Jury selection in Kaden Barefoot murder trial

The trial of a Warner Robins teen accused of killing another teen was supposed to start Monday.

After some complaints from the defense, however, a Houston County judge put the trial on hold until further notice.

Kaden Barefoot, 14, is accused of shooting Ryan Skeen, 16, to death last year.

Jury selection got underway, but Judge George Nunn delayed the trial until further notice after the defense raised issues with how the jury selection process was being carried out.

So far, there's no word when the trial will happen.

Skeen was shot in the neck Oct. 26 in the 200 block of Franklin Square. He was taken off of life support the next morning.

Police have said drugs were involved and robbery was a motive.

Barefoot, who is being tried as an adult, is charged with felony murder, aggravated battery, aggravated assault, possession of a firearm by an underage person, possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime and possession of prescription pills.
