A 14-year-old Alabama boy who police said killed two women after one of them bumped his foot will face murder charges against him as an adult after a judge this week removed his juvenile status.

Vincent Oliver Jr., 14, faces two murder charges

Oliver is accused of shooting Jasmine Danielle Bean, 21, and Ja’Lexius Lason Wells, 20, on November 20, 2022, when one of the two allegedly bumped into Oliver’s foot.

Each woman was reportedly shot in the head.

Social media photos released by police as they searched for Oliver showed him holding several types of firearms.

Due to his age, he will face life in prison without parole if convicted of capital murder.
