A Lansing teen convicted of murder when he was 13-years-old is headed to a transitional home, where he'll be a step closer to freedom.
Charles Lewis Jr., now 19-years-old, was found guilty of felony murder.
In 2010 he and several others dragged 19-year-old Shayla Johnson out of bed, beat her, then fatally shot her.
Since then Lewis has been serving time in a juvenile detention facility. Every three months he checks in with a judge who's been monitoring the teen's progress. On Tuesday Judge Economy found Lewis met the requirements to move to a less-secure facility.
