Three teens were charged with murder in the beating of an elderly man at a laundromat in Clarksville.

In June, 71-year-old Ted Cook died from his injuries a few weeks after he was robbed and beaten by the three teens on May 30.

On Wednesday, 15-year-old Harrison Elijah Smith, 15-year-old Jevon Brodie and 14-year-old Tavaras Lee Harbison were charged with first degree murder.

Harrison and Brodie were also charged with especially aggravated robbery and theft of property.

Officials with the Clarksville Police Department said the juveniles kicked and hit him repeatedly with the butt of a rifle during a robbery at a Super Suds Carwash and Laundry.
