Teens on trial over 96-year-old man’s death

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - Two teenagers are now on trial, accused of beating a 96-year-old man to death in Buffalo. Jury selection started Tuesday in the case of Shaquar Pratcher and Elhajji Elshabazz.

Prosecutors say the teens savagely attacked 96-year-old Levi Clayton during a home invasion on the city’s east side in 2012.

Clayton was severely injured and spent weeks in the hospital before he died. Two other teens pleaded guilty to robbery charges in the case.
