NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) — It’s been just over a month since 73-year-old Linda Frickey was killed during a horrific Mid-City carjacking. Although a massive public effort led to the arrest of the four teenagers suspected of killing Frickey, the case is now moving forward with prosecution.

On Thursday afternoon, District Attorney Jason Williams will provide an update on a grand jury’s decision in the case.

Williams reports all 4 suspects will be tried as adults and have been charged with second-degree murder.

“Simply put, the juvenile justice system is not designed for this,” Williams commented.
