BRIDGEPORT, Conn. -- Michael “Smitty” Majors, who is accused of the murder in Bridgeport of a 14-year-old boy on Christmas Eve, will stand trail, according to the Connecticut Post.

Superior Court Judge Maria Kahn said during a hearing last week that the state will be allowed to try the case under both murder and murder under special circumstances, the Connecticut Post reported. According to police, the teen, Luis Colon, was caught in the crossfire and hit in the back by a stray bullet during a dispute between Majors, 23, and Garth Minto, 22, on State Street, said the Connecticut Post.

If convicted of murder under special circumstances Mayors would be sentenced to life without patrol. The case has been continued until May 25, added the Connecticut Post.
