The case against 16-year-old Byron Vinson will now move along to the Common Pleas Court, after he sat before a judge, dressed in a white shirt and religious cap, and waived his preliminary hearing.
Vinson and Taron Small are accused of murdering 18-year-old Kristian Marche, who was shot and killed the day before he was to start at Penn State University on a track and field scholarship.
The incident happened on East Pastorius Street, near Woolston Avenue in West Oak Lane last August.
Authorities say the two were trying to break into Marche's home, and when he confronted them, Small shot him in the back of he head.
A prelim hearing that was also scheduled for 17-year-old Small has now been continued until May.
