One of the six teenagers arrested in connection to a stabbing in Troy was in court this afternoon. They are facing charges for their alleged involvement in 21-year-old Takim Smith's death. Our Lori Chung was in court and has the latest.

TROY, N.Y. -- One of the six teens arrested in connection to a stabbing in Troy was in court Friday afternoon. The teens are facing charges for their alleged involvement in 21-year-old Takim Smith's death.

Davonte McGill, 18, was led into court to face a number of charges, including second degree murder and robbery. Police say McGill was one of six people who helped to lure the Smith to the Corliss Park Apartments earlier this month to rob him.

Prosecutors say McGill's arrest gives them everyone who they think was involved in Smith's murder.

"Essentially he was not charged originally. The way the case developed the evidence fell into place.
He was the last to be charged," said Richard McNally, Rensselaer County District Attorney.

Police say they do not anticipate any more arrests.

McGill pleaded not guilty and is being held without bail.

Another girl arrested in the case, Keyanna Bradley, 18, is expected in court on Monday.
