HILTON HEAD ISLAND, SC (WTOC) -

It's been nearly six months since Khalil Singleton's grandmother walked out of her front door and found him laying in her front yard, bleeding and fighting for his life.

On Monday, the three men responsible were indicted for the murder.

"They should be in jail for the rest of their lives because my grandson is not coming back. They should be electrocuted," said Edvina Washington, Singleton's grandmother.

Tyrone Robinson, Aaron Young Jr. and Aaron Young Sr. were arrested for the shooting. Beaufort County deputies say the three men were arguing over a long standing fued between them.

Deputies say the bullet that killed Singleton came from Robinson's gun, but all three are charged with the murder.

Washington was cooking dinner when she heard three shots. She thought Khalil was playing on the trampoline outside.

"I went outside and I called his name," Washington said. "He never answered."

Washington is now in counseling, and she said she's leaning on God, hoping he can guide her to some kind of peace.

But, when asked if she could ever forgive Robinson and the Youngs, she said, "No, I'll never. Never."
