Two Detroit teenagers face trial on second-degree murder charges in the shooting of an 84-year-old security guard outside a church where Bible study was taking place.

Fifteen-year-old Anthony Williams and 18-year-old Alandre Boone are charged as adults in Joseph Lewis' death May 9.

On Thursday, Detroit District Judge Ruth Carter ruled there's enough evidence to send the case to trial. Williams cried after the hearing the judge's decision.

The teens face arraignment June 14 in Wayne County Circuit Court.

Lewis was sitting in a car outside Victory Way Assembly Church of God in Christ when he was shot during a struggle. Police say they found Lewis' gun still in its holster.

Police say robbery may have been the motive.
