You're not supposed to murder your uncle?

With a name like Davion Decontai Howard, I need not say any more.

Those aged 18-20 are also adults and not "kids" or "teens", meaning they shouldn't be called those words. The writer of this article broke that rule by calling the young man who murdered a "teen". This article should've been titled "Young Man charged with killing his uncle in Pr. William". It's good that the young man has been arrested.
