Suspect charged in Brito teens' murders


A suspect in the shooting deaths of two Tampa teenagers has now been charged with two counts of first degree murder.

Detectives filed the charges just a short time ago against 19-year-old Charles Waits.

They say he and Tavari Grant broke into a home on West Van Buren Drive earlier this month, and shot 16-year-old Kiara Brito and her 13-year-old brother Jeremi in the head.

Detectives say the two men took off with jewelry, watches, and cash.

Grant was also charged in the murders.
