WOODBURY, N.J. (AP) - Two teenage brothers charged with killing a 12-year-old New Jersey girl will remain in a juvenile detention center.

Assistant Gloucester County Prosecutor Michelle Jeneby says a judge ordered the 15- and 17-year-old to remain detained until a Nov. 16 hearing.

The prosecutor says she expects her office will seek to try the brothers as adults.

Friday's hearing was closed to the public and news media. News organizations will also appear on Nov. 16 to seek to open future hearings.

Authorities haven't released the names of the suspects. But relatives and neighbors have identified them as 17-year-old Dante Robinson and 15-year-old Justin Robinson.

Authorities say the younger boy lured 12-year-old Autumn Pasquale (pas-KWAL'-ee) to their home by promising to trade bicycle parts.

Her funeral is Saturday.
