Three Duncan, Oklahoma teens have now been charged in the alleged "murder for fun" of the Australian student gunned down over the weekend.

Authorities said the teenagers allegedly conspired to kill an East Central University baseball player out of "boredom."

Duncan police said one of the juvenile suspects confessed to the crime.

Officials in Stephens County have charged 15-year-old James Edwards Jr. and 16-year-old Chancey Luna with first-degree murder. Because they are juveniles, they cannot receive the death penalty, but they could spend life in prison.

In addition, 17-year-old Michael Jones is facing two felony counts of discharging a weapon and accessory to murder after the fact. He is being charged as a juvenile.

The victim was 22-year-old Christopher Lane, a native of Australia.
