Two teens now face criminal homicide charges after the shooting death of a 55-year-old woman at her Antioch home.

Juvenile Crime Task Force officers with the Metro Nashville Police Department announced that a 16-year-old Javonterious Starnes and 17-year-old Deaundre Ridley were arrested for the gunshot death of 55-year-old Beverly Hicks.

Hicks died on July 10 after bullets fired into her Calais Circle home in Antioch a month earlier on June 11.

Officers say that on June 11, people in a silver Nissan Maxima opened fire on the Calais Circle home. Bullets reportedly went through a window and struck Hicks, who was in bed. She was rushed to Vanderbilt University Medical Center and died of complications of being shot, according to Metro Police.

A Metro Police investigation says the gunfire stemmed from a dispute the teens were having with Hicks' 16-year-old nephew who also lives at the Calais Circle home. The two teens have been accused of robbing and shooting Hicks' nephew on June 8 near Haynes Park Drive.
