GREENEVILLE, TN (WJHL) -

Four juveniles, one of whom was charged with murder, who were the subject of a manhunt in South Carolina last week were given June trial dates Friday in Juvenile Court in Greeneville.

Zachary Blanchard was charged with first-degree murder in the death of his father.

He was scheduled to stand trial June 12, according to Juvenile Court.

Blanchard and three other teens were arrested by South Carolina authorities the day after the murder of Blanchard’s father.

Liam Lawlor was given a trial date of June 24; Daniel Birchfield Roberts was scheduled for trial June 26; and Shelby Riley was set for trial June 17.

Those three were charged with one count each of accessory after the fact to first-degree murder and one count of theft over $1,000 and less than $10,000.

All four waived extradition and returned to Tennessee April 4.

Blanchard's father, 36-year-old Robert Blanchard, was found dead in his home on Snapps Ferry Road. He had been shot.

The four teens were found in Newberry County, S.C., following a 10-hour manhunt.

There is a possibility all four could be tried as adults. If the state files motions to proceed in adult court, those trial dates would become transfer hearing dates.
