Carltrell Odom died last year when he was shot by several teens who tried to rob him outside a southeast Houston apartment complex. Today, 18-year-old Wallace Hightower will be in court. Police say he was the teen driving the getaway car.

Last month, one of the other teens was sentenced to life in prison.
