WOODBURY, N.J. - The godfather of a slain 12-year-old New Jersey girl is planning to stage a rally calling for the teen boys accused of killing her to be tried as adults.

Paul Spadafora, who is also the great uncle of Autumn Pasquale (pas-KWAHL'-ee), is organizing the event in Woodbury.

Her body was found in a recycling bin and teen brothers Justin and Dante Robinson were charged with murder and other crimes. Prosecutors are asking for the case to be moved to adult court.

However, acrimony has surrounded the case.

The Gloucester County Prosecutor's Office last week announced it would transfer the case Camden County prosecutors because of a lawsuit filed over the handling of the case.
