A 16-year-old boy has been charged as an adult with first-degree murder in the shooting death of another teenager last month in Wilmington. Police say Abednego Baynes was arrested Friday by U.S. Marshals in Elkton, Md., where he'd been hiding since the shooting.

Wilmington detectives interviewed Baynes and charged him with murder and weapons offenses in the death of 19-year-old William Teel. The victim was gunned down in the 2200 block of North Spruce Street on Jan. 8.
