Nelson and Racheon Brown II were charged with murder after police say one of them shot teen Mark Hooten in the back.
Hooten was shot in the 3700 block of Borden Street when he was walking to a job-training program, according to investigators.

Hooten was taken to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.
To those that knew him, Hooten was a popular neighborhood kid who worked hard at Dater High School, attended church and dreamed of playing professional basketball.
On Thursday, Brown is expected to plead guilty to murder charges.
