Roswell teens murder suspect to be arraigned

Jeffrey Hazelwood to be arraigned Thursday

ROSWELL, Ga. -- The man accused of murdering two Roswell teens is expected to be arraigned on Thursday.

Jeffrey Hazelwood is expected to enter a plea in a morning hearing.

A grand jury indicted him last month in the deaths of Carter Davis and Natalie Henderson after the high school students were killed behind a Roswell grocery store.

Hazelwood's attorney, Lawrence Zimmerman, told 11Alive that the district attorney is still deciding whether to ask for the death penalty.

The defense claims Hazelwood suffers from several mental illnesses, including schizophrenia.

He faces numerous charges, including two counts of murder, two counts each of aggravated assault, sexual battery, identity fraud and theft.
