Two Fluvanna County teenagers who are charged with making a threatening tape will have to wait to find out if they'll be tried as adults.

A juvenile judge already agreed to try the teens as adults, but the defense is hoping to stop that from happening. Friday, a judge granted to have the decision appealed.

The two felony charges the 17-year-old boys face two felony charges: electronically threatening to kill ,and conspiracy to kill or do bodily harm.

Fluvanna County officials have not released many details about the case because it involves minors. However, officials tell CBS19/ABC16 the boys attend Fluvanna County High School and allegedly made a videotape containing death threats.

Officials will not reveal who the threats were made against, but on Thursday the school superintendent told us no one at the school was a target and they have chosen not to tell parents.

CBS19/ABC16 spoke to parents who said they should've been told and now they want to know more about the tape. The details surrounding the tape will likely come after the appeals hearing, once a judge decides on whether or not to try them as adults.

The appeals hearing is set for November 18. The boys are currently being held at the Blue Ridge Juvenile Detention center.
