Teens accused of murdering Aussie thought bullets were blank

ONE of three teenagers standing trial in the US for the shooting death of Australian baseball player Chris Lane in Oklahoma last year has told a court he and his co-accused believed the gun was loaded with blanks.

Three teenagers - James Edwards Junior, Chancey Luna and Michael Jones - are charged with first-degree murder over the death, the ABC has reported.

Lane was shot in the back while he was jogging on a street in the small town of Duncan on August 16 last year

He was in the US on a baseball scholarship at East Central University and was just two weeks away from celebrating his 23rd birthday.

Prior to the shooting he has just returned to the US after a trip to Australia with his American girlfriend, Sarah Harper.

A preliminary hearing is being held ahead of a trial expected later this year.
