Nashville musician Kyle Yorlets Cause Of Death,
Wright, 16, is charged with the murder of Nashville musician Kyle Yorlets, who was found shot to death outside his home in February.
Morris Marsh, 17, is accused of murder. Brandon Caruthers, 17, and Calvin Howse, 15, are facing armed robbery and gun possession charges.
Police said the teens were on a work detail when their staff supervisor left to respond to a fight elsewhere at the facility.
The teens then got onto an elevator to the ground floor and went through several doors to reach an exit. More than a half-hour elapsed before police were notified of the escape. Initially, police said the teens were seen at a gas station early Sunday in Clarksville, which is about 47 miles (76 kilometers) northwest of Nashville. But after a youth crime workforce officer reviewed the security video, it was determined that the people in the video were not fugitives. Yorlets, the leader of the rock band Carverton, was shot dead on February 7 and police charged three girls and two boys with criminal manslaughter.
Police said the youths were in a stolen pickup truck in an alley behind Yorlets’ home when they spotted him outside.
They are accused of stealing his wallet, demanding the keys to his vehicle and shooting him when he refused.
