TROY, Ala. — A teenager from Pike County, Alabama, accused of killing his brother and allegedly carrying a “hit list” is set to be tried as an adult, according to the district attorney’s office.

The defendant, now identified as 15-year-old William Speros, was arrested in October when he was 14 for the slaying of his 17-year-old brother, Jeremy Speros. Pike County Sheriff Russell Thomas revealed that Speros confessed to shooting his brother on their porch and then dragging his body behind their home.

Further disturbing details emerged as Thomas disclosed that Speros had allegedly confessed the killing to a friend at school the next day. The defendant reportedly asked for their assistance in targeting and eliminating more family members. Additionally, Speros possessed a “hit list” of family members and had expressed intentions of “shooting up the school.”

Due to the severity of the crime and the surrounding circumstances, Judge Steven Curtis issued an order transferring the case to adult court, as announced by the district attorney’s office. Speros is now facing a murder charge and will be held without bail until his upcoming hearing in district court.

The decision to try a minor as an adult is a significant and controversial one, highlighting the gravity of the allegations against Speros. This move suggests that the court deems him capable of understanding the consequences of his actions and potentially receiving a harsher punishment.

In the coming weeks, the legal proceedings will shed light on the motivations and events leading up to the tragic incident. The community eagerly awaits further updates and the pursuit of justice for the victim and their grieving family.
