Paul Sampleton Jr:Larnell Sillah, 15,  has been charged with felony murder in the shooting death of 14-year-old Paul Sampleton, Jr., who was found bound and gagged in his home on December 19, murdered over a high-end sneaker collection, reports the

Achiel Morgan, 15, and Romaine Stewart, 18, have both been charged with planning Sampleton’s death, and two of the teens have been charged as adults.

Channel 2 confirmed the speculation that Sampleton, who was involved in the “shoe game,” was killed for his expensive shoe collection. He was known by friends and acquaintances to have the most impressive one. The teens even stole the shoes that were on his feet when they killed him.

“They were aware that he had nice things. They were aware that he traded in these high end sneakers,” said Cpl. Jake Smith with the Gwinnett County Police Department.

As previously reported by NewsOne, Sampleton was tied up in his Gwinnett County, Georgia home and shot to death Wednesday, December 19, 2012, the last day of classes before winter break. His father found him in the kitchen at approximately 12:00 p.m.

“He was smiling, listening to music,” Abiodun Abiodun, 15, said. “He got on his bus, I got on mine. We were all happy.”

Stephanie Stone, Sampleton’s mother, said that though it’s sad that three young, Black men will probably spend the rest of their lives in jail, she does not feel sorry for their parents:

“I’m not going to say that I feel bad for those parents. I’m not, because I feel bad for me. These parents are the ones raising these types of children. They’re raising them,” Stone said.
