DULUTH, Minn. — A Duluth teen charged with killing a United States Army veteran who suffered more than 50 wounds to his head, face, neck and back will be tried as an adult.

Enrique "Ricky" Robert Giner IV had been charged in a juvenile delinquency petition with second-degree murder in the March slaying of 27-year-old Bryan Alan Starnes in Duluth. He was 17 at the time. Giner turned 18 on July 7.

The Duluth News Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/13V7TfA ) a judge accepted Giner's waiver into adult court and ordered he be moved from Arrowhead Juvenile Center to the St. Louis County Jail. He will be charged with the same crime in an adult criminal complaint.

Starnes was an Army veteran who served a tour of duty in Afghanistan.
