    A Cochise County teen who's facing second-degree-murder charges accidentally shot his friend after they broke into a Hereford home Friday morning, according to information released by the Cochise County Sheriff's Department Tuesday morning.

    Nicholas Michael Murphy, 16, remains at the Cochise County jail on a $250,000 bond.

    Murphy told detectives during an interview that he and Josh Olson, 16, were in a residence in the 2800 block of Homestead Road in Hereford, which is between Sierra Vista and Bisbee, when they found a shotgun, the release says.

    The shotgun accidentally discharged, striking Olson, it says.

    Further investigation revealed the two teens had broken into the house.

    Murphy was charged as an adult with second-degree murder in connection with his friend's death. He also faces burglary and trespassing charges, according to the release.

    :lol: Would it be messed up to say they got what was coming to them? Or what goes around comes around.

    To bad they were good kids :roll: .

    The home owner better watch out. He might get sued for having a weapon locked in his own home. That's would be like when the one criminal broke into a home then fell into a pool in the back yard that was empty and sued, and won.
