3 teens set to learn sentence for murder of Hanover teen

HANOVER, VA (WWBT) -

Three teens convicted of killing a Hanover 16-year-old will find out their sentence Monday.

A judge found Da'von Byers, Xavia Highsmith, and Kevin Drayton guilty of first-degree murder in October for shooting and killing Brett Wells.

Attorneys say the murder was the result of a botched drug deal and attempted robbery.

The teens are expected to learn their fate in court at 9 a.m. Monday. They could face as little as six years and as much as life in prison.
