    Charges filed against 2 suspects accused of killing Washington County teen, injuring another 02:28

    SOUTH FRANKLIN TOWNSHIP, Pa. (KDKA) — Charges have been filed against two suspects who are accused of shooting and killing a teenager in Washington County earlier this month.

    Washington County District Attorney Jason Walsh on Monday announced that charges have been filed against Windale Barfield Jr. and Karon Whitlock in the fatal shooting of 18-year-old Annalaya Wilkerson and the wounding of another juvenile female.

    Wilkerson and the juvenile were found shot on the side of Jolly School Road in South Franklin Township on April 13.

    Both men have been charged with criminal homicide, conspiracy, attempted homicide and aggravated assault, according to a press release from the district attorney.

    "The girls got picked up from the Red Roof Inn in Washington County, and they entered the vehicle with those two males. At that point, that's where we're still trying to continue this investigation because we have that blank area of what happened in the car that the girls had to exit," said Trooper Rocco Gagliardi. "Something had to have happened in that vehicle. The odds of these two females walking on Jolly School Road at that time of the day in an area they're not from is very unexpected and rare."

    Troopers worked around the clock investigating, conducting interviews and using cell phone data for locations, texts, and calls.

    Barfield and Whitlock are not in custody at this time.

    Anyone with information on where they might be should contact the state police.
