Two suspects are being charged with murder in what prosecutors call the "thrill killing" of a teenager.

Etowah County District Attorney Jimmie Harp says 22-year-old Troy Andrew Smith and 19-year-old Nathanial Wayne Lee are both being charged with murder in the killing of 15-year-old Jeffrey Blake Stone.

Remains that prosecutors think belong to the teen who'd been missing since March 24th were found Tuesday in a freezer in the Littleton community.

Prosecutors found the remains after confronting one of the suspects about a shallow grave they'd found where its believed Stone's body was initially buried.

Investigators say the two Attalla men may have planned to kill Stone for weeks.

Forensic testing is underway to determine how Stone had been killed but prosecutors believe he'd been shot.

Jeanine Stone says he son was kind-hearted and didn't deserve to be murdered.  She says her son's death has been devastating.

Both suspects are being held without bond.
