Two teenagers are accused of beating a man to death after arguing over a cigarette.

Derrick Burns, 15, and William Davis, 16, both face first degree murder charges. They are being charged as adults.

The boys reportedly punched and kicked the man. At one point, burns dropped a speaker on Baker’s head.

Baker died from an asthma attack.

        Killing an asthmatic over a cigarette…. The man shouldn't have been smoking a cigarette in the first place. That's what killed him, though the violence is not really good… Wonder if the kids got their cigarette….

    I can only pray that there is more to this story. If not, I am totally OK with God hitting the reset button and starting over. These 2 kids, I repeat KIDS, are animals. And things are only getting worse.
