Women charged in murder of Garden City High School student

DETROIT (WXYZ) - Two women were arraigned on murder charges Wednesday after the fatal shooting of a Garden City High School student in Detroit last week. 

Sharnea Diamond McCoy, 21, and Erica Italy Osburn, 25, both from Detroit, are charged with first degree murder and felony firearm, according to Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy.

Investigators tell 7 Action News 17-year-old Reginald Robinson was shot and killed all because the women thought he made a comment about one of their bodies when he actually didn't. 

"It wasn't even him...another man in the store made a comment about the heavier set girl...the boys laughed...when did laughing become a reason to take someone's life?" said Taquanda Foster. 

It's believed that Osburn shot Robinson as she sat in a car with McCoy on Friday, Feb. 24 around 6:30 p.m.

In their mug shots, the women don't even appear to be scared of the idea of being under arrest for the teen's murder. 

The pair are due back in court next week.
