BOSSIER CITY, LA (KSLA) -

Two juveniles have been indicted on a charge of first-degree murder in connection with the shooting death of a Bossier City woman.

Tremond Thomas, 16, and Randolph Andrew, 17, both of Bossier City, have been charged as adults in the murder of 21-year-old Ieshia Winbush. She was shot to death on Sept. 23 at the Patton Street home of her boyfriend, 22-year-old Taurus Trammel Carter.

Carter was initially arrested and charged with second-degree murder, but he was dropped as a suspect when new information implicated the two teens were involved.

Bossier City police say that one of the suspects fatally shot Winbush as the two teens were in the process of burglarizing the residence. The juveniles, who were both 16 at the time of the murder, were initially booked into the Bossier Juvenile Detention Center, but have since been transferred to the Bossier Maximum Security Facility.

Thomas and Andrew are to be arraigned on Tuesday.
