Three teenagers have been arrested and charged with murder in connection to an assault and burglary of an elderly man.

On September 2, 2013, deputies say 84-year-old Waverly Bourne was "brutally beaten" during a burglary of his home on Lick Fork Creek Road in Ruffin, NC.

Bourne remained in the hospital until he died on January 14 as a result of his injuries.

Deputies arrested 18-year-olds Kaleb Dunithan and Nicholas Lowery, as well as 17-year-old Jacob Adams and charged them each with first degree murder and first degree burglary.

They were taken to the Rockingham County Jail, placed under no bond, and are awaiting a March 17 court appearance.
