Teen Suspects Extradited Back to Tennessee

GREENE COUNTY, TN (WLTX) -- The four teens that led police on a 10-hour chase in Newberry last week have been extradited back to Tennessee.

The teens arrived in Greene County around 9:30 Tuesday night. Deputies said the teens will remain at a juvenile detention center until they have a hearing Friday.

The district attorney general is now considering whether or not to seek to transfer any or all of the suspects out of juvenile court and into adult court.

16-year-old Zack Blanchard is accused of killing his father and faces a first-degree murder charge.

The other teens are charged with accessory after the fact to murder. All four face theft charges.

The teenagers waived extradition during a juvenile court hearing on Monday.
