Although police have identified the 17-year-old suspect, the Associated Press typically does not identify juvenile crime suspects.


Police say the three were involved in a Jan. 13 home invasion robbery and a homeowner shot Robertson in self-defense.


Because Robertson was killed during the commission of a robbery, state law allows his accomplices to be charged in his death.


It is unclear if Butler and the juvenile suspect have lawyers.
