A man accused of shooting and killing a 5-year-old boy in a drive-by has been officially charged.

Marlon Hackett, 19, was charged with aggravated murder, murder, two counts of felonious assault and weapons charges in Ramon D. Burnett's death.

Dontavius D. Williams, 18, was charged with having weapons under disability.
