Trial set for teen accused of murder


COVINGTON Ga - Jury selection for the trial of a Covington teen accused in the June 2016 murder of a man who gave him and two friends a ride is slated to begin Monday morning.

Antavian Love, who was 16 at the time of his arrest, will go on trial April 10 for the murder of Enrique Ramirez Trejo. Trejo’s body was found in a drainage culvert on Lower River Road, shot multiple times, hours after he was seen on video giving a ride to three teens from a Covington Bypass gas station.

According to previous statements from the Newton County Sheriff’s Office, Trejo was employed at the El Charo Restaurant on Covington Bypass Road.

Love was arrested when he and others ran from a traffic stop after Trejo’s 1999 Ford Expedition was spotted by law enforcement on Brown Bridge Road.

In addition to three counts of murder, Love is charged with armed robbery, aggravated assault, theft by receiving stolen property and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony.
