The Christopher Lane murder case has led to public outcry, given the senseless nature of the killing - and allegations of racial double standards by the media.
An Australian-born college baseball player, Lane was gunned down last week while out on a jog in Duncan, Okla., where he had been visiting his girlfriend.
James Edwards, 15, and Chancey Luna, 16, were charged with first-degree murder. Michael Jones, 17, was accused of being an accessory to murder.
According to police, Jones made a detailed confession, saying, "We were bored and didn't have anything to do, so we decided to kill somebody."
Two of the alleged killers, Edwards and Luna, are black. Jones is white. Police have not ascribed a racial motive; Jones basically said it was "for fun."
