The family of a little boy set on fire 15 years ago say they are getting closer to justice.

Robbie Middleton was set on fire on his 8th birthday back in 1998.

Don Collins is charged in Middleton’s murder. He was in court on Wednesday.

The Montgomery County District Attorney is now seeking to have Collins, who was 13 at the time, certified as an adult in Middleton’s murder.

Middleton’s mother says the news gets them one step closer to closure.

Middleton endured more than 100 surgeries before his death in 2011. He was 20 years old.
