YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – A Youngstown teenager facing murder charges as an adult made his first appearance in Common Pleas Court on Tuesday morning.

Stashawn Dates was 17 when he was arrested a year ago in the robbery and shooting death of Jesse Daviduk.

In August, he was bound over to face trial as an adult.

Authorities say the shooting happened during a drug deal gone bad in a parking lot on South Avenue.

If Dates is convicted, he faces life in prison.
