Authorities say that the two people accused of killing a pizza delivery driver in Lawrenceville stole pizza from the victim and ignored the cash that was in his pocket.

News outlets report 21-year-old Jermaine Young and a 14-year-old boy appeared during a Gwinnett County court hearing Friday in connection with the March 1 slaying of 28-year-old Shane Varnadore of Buford.

Gwinnett County Police Detective Matthew Kenck testified that investigators who searched the suspects’ Lawrenceville apartment found the handgun used in the slaying. Kenck also says they found four pizza boxes that Varnadore had been delivering to the suspects’ address. He says $62 was found in Varnadore’s pocket.

Young and the teenager are charged with felony murder, aggravated assault and armed robbery.

Kenck says both suspects blame the other for the shooting.
