The teen charged in connection with a shooting death at Mount Tabor High School will be tried as an adult. 

Fifteen-year-old Maurice Evans Jr. has been indicted for murder in connection with the death of William Chavis Raynard Miller Jr. 

Miller, also 15, died after being shot at Mount Tabor September 1. Both were students at the school.

Authorities have been tight-lipped about the details of the case. The Winston-Salem Journal reports that District Attorney Jim O'Neill has said in juvenile court proceedings that the shooting was the result of a summer-long dispute.

Evans' attorney, J. D. Byers, asked that he be released to his parents' custody with an ankle bracelet to keep track of his whereabouts. 

But a Forsyth County judge ordered Evans to be held in a juvenile detention center without bond.
