From the Associated Press:

Authorities say two teens who broke into a home to steal electric guitars are charged with murder in the shooting death of a 32-year-old man from Washington.

Investigators said Scott Johnston, of Pullman, Wash., was shot several times around 7:30 a.m. Thursday in a house in Seneca. Oconee County deputies say a woman living with Johnston told them two masked men broke into the home and tied her up before the shooting. She was also shot in the foot.

Deputies say a neighbor, 18-year-old James Toward, and a 16-year-old male are charged with murder, first-degree burglary, kidnapping and other charges. It wasn't known if they had attorneys.

Investigators say the teens stole three electric guitars from Johnston's home.
