DONALDSONVILLE, LA (WAFB) -

A hearing in the case of the beating death of a 15-year-old boy showed signs that the two juvenile suspects in the case may be tried as adults.

Kaglin Green, 16, and Kahlil Howard, 17, appeared in court Monday before a judge for a 72-hour juvenile hearing. The court found probable cause for both juveniles to be held on murder charges at the Ascension Parish Jail in Donaldsonville in the death of Brandon Augusta.

The District Attorney's Office is currently awaiting all appropriate and final investigative materials from the Ascension Parish Sheriff's Office. The two juveniles could be tried as adults based on their review.

Green and Howard, along with Tyrell Williams, 18, and Marcus Ester, 21, were arrested last week for their roles in Augusta's death.

Augusta was reported missing on Aug. 10, 2014. According to Sheriff Jeff Wiley, Augusta and the four men went to the levee and smoked synthetic marijuana. At some point, it is believed the men got into an argument about a previous dispute and beat up Augusta and left him there. His body was found four days later.
