Teen fugitives extradited back to TN

Posted: Updated:

Four teens arrested after a manhunt in Newberry County last week were extradited back to Tennessee to face charges related to a murder case.

The four teens were in an Abbeville County courtroom for an initial appearance Monday afternoon.

Investigators say they took off from Tennessee to South Carolina after 16-year old Zack Blanchard killed his father. They were caught following a 10-hour manhunt.

Zack will be charged with the death of his 36-year-old father, Robert Blanchard.

The three other teens, 15-year-old Liam Lawler, 16-year-old Shelby Riley, and 15-year-old Daniel Richards-Birchfield, will be charged with accessory after the fact of first-degree murder and theft over $1,000.

According to Bristol, Tennessee NBC affiliate WCYB, the teens are expected to have their first court appearance Friday.
