An unnamed 16-year-old boy held in connection with the shooting death this week of a Texas City man during a carjacking was charged Thursday with capital murder and aggravated robbery, police said.

Assistant District Attorney Xochitl Vandiver-Gaskin, assigned to prosecute the case, will begin the process of determining whether to build a case against the youth in juvenile or adult court, she said.
