Two black teenagers have been accused of killing a man after he helped them get their car out of ditch Monday night.

Deon Antonio Frasier, 17, and Michael Odell Anthony Dupree-Tyler, 19, face murder charges regarding the death of Chadwick Garrett, the man who stopped to help them, reports The Post and Courier. They were denied bond at their hearing Tuesday night.

According to arrest affidavits, a witness asked Garrett to help the teenagers get their car out of a ditch. Witnesses claim that Garrett said he would help them remove the car for $20.

When Garrett asked about the $20, authorities said that Frasier took out his gun and shot Garrett multiple times, hitting him in the chest. Afterwards, Frasier got in the car and Dupree- Tyler drove them away.

The affidavit states that 20 minute later, a woman called 911 from the apartment the teenagers were living at to say that they were using her car without permission. She gave the police a description of the car and the two teenagers.

The woman tried to cancel the call after she got her car back.

After a short standoff at the apartment, police arrested Frasier and Dupree-Tyler. Investigators claimed that Frasier confessed to the shooting while Dupree-Tyler confessed to being there at the scene. Frasier is also being charged with having a weapon during a violent crime.

According to court records, Frasier was out on a $10,000 bail for possession of a stolen car.

At the bond hearing, Garrett’s father spoke, calling the two teenagers “cowards.”

“You guys killed a man. Only cowards carry guns,” Moses Garret said.

Dupree-Tyler tried to respond to the claim, saying that he wasn’t the one who actually shot Garrett.

“With all due respect to the family, they coming at me the wrong way because I haven’t murdered anyone,” he said, before the judge cut him off.
