A 16-year-old West Valley boy was charged as an adult Tuesday with murdering his stepfather.

Rosco Dewayne Brackett, who turns 17 on Wednesday, was charged in 3rd District Court with murder, a first-degree felony; obstructing justice, a second-degree felony; and illegal discharge of a firearm, a third-degree felony.

On Sept. 13, Brackett got into an argument with his stepfather, James Michael George, 52, at their house at 6800 W. 3700 South. Brackett walked away from the argument to get a handgun in the front room and fired a shot at George, missing him, according to the charges.

“(Brackett) then fired another shot which hit George in the head. After George fell to the floor, (Brackett) shot George repeatedly,” the charges state.

Prosecutors say Brackett then hid the handgun and threw away his shirt.

Brackett’s mother, Gina George, immediately called for police and an ambulance after the shooting, said West Valley Police Sgt. Mike Powell.

George died two days later at a hospital.

Brackett was originally booked into juvenile detention but prosecutors decided to charge him as an adult. Bail was set Tuesday at $1 million.
