Prosecutors for the State of Tennessee want to try a Rhea County teenager accused of murder as an adult. Authorities say 15-year-old Trinity Quinn of Dayton, Tennessee was scheduled to appear in juvenile court this afternoon. That hearing was waived and her next court appearance will be May 16. Until then, Quinn will remain in a Nashville juvenile detention center. Quinn, along with Daniel Clark, are both accused in the Tuesday night murder of 58-year-old John Stevens, a clerk at the Exxon station along Charlotte Pike in Nashville. Clark is accused of holding Stevens at gunpoint and demanding his keys. Stevens grabbed the hand Clark was holding a gun in, and at that point, police said Clark took a few steps back and fired several rounds into Stevens body. Clark allegedly rummaged through Stevens pockets after the shooting and pulled out the clerk’s vehicle keys. Clark and Quinn fled the store and the area after an unsuccessful attempt to steal an SUV. The two were picked up the next day after a dump truck driver noticed Quinn and alerted authorities.
