Two Milford teenagers and a Bridgeville teen accused of carjacking an 89-year-old Sussex County woman this past March and leaving her in the trunk of her car for two days were back in Sussex County Superior Court in Georgetown Thursday for a hearing to determine if they should be tried as juveniles or adults.
15-year-old Jackeline Perez, 14-year-old Junia McDonald and 17-year-old Rondaiges Harper are accused of kidnapping Margaret Smith of Lincoln by throwing her in the truck of her Buick sedan on March 18 and then driving her to a Seaford cemetery where she was found the next day, dazed and confused and suffering from exposure.
Both girls and Harper have pleaded NOT guilty as has their co-conspirator, 17-year-old Phillip Brewer of Bridgeville.
All four are requesting jury trials.
