SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

A Savannah teen on an ankle monitor has been charged in a burglary, a car chase and a murder.

Randolph Lawrence Wilson III, 19, was arrested Sept. 9. He'd been out of jail less than a month when police arrested him on top of a house at 39th and Ash streets, after he and an accomplice allegedly stole an SUV, burglarized a house on Isle of Hope, and led police on a car chase across Savannah.

Police Monday said he also gunned down Michael Wilson, 31, in Frazier Homes on Aug. 26. He was officially charged in that crime today and is due back in court October 17th.

He was charged then with two counts of burglary, theft by receiving (auto), obstruction by fleeing, possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, possession of a drug related item and obstruction of an officer with harm/injury.

He had recently been released from jail and was on probation with an ankle monitor.
