14-year-old denied bail on alleged rape and murder of elderly neighbor in West Baltimore – Baltimore Sun

14-year-old denied bail on alleged rape and murder of elderly neighbor in West Baltimore – Baltimore Sun

A judge denied bail Monday for a seventh-grader from Baltimore charged with rape and murder, saying he poses an extreme risk to public security.

Tyrone Harvin, 14, was arrested Friday and accused of killing his older neighbor, Dorothy Mae Neal. The 83-year-old woman was beaten and sexually abused last month in her apartment in West-Baltimore.

The police wrote in the charging of documents that the boy has not admitted to the crime.

A DNA test of the evidence was pending when he was arrested last week. Officers said, however, that they found the fingerprints of the boy on a condom package in the apartment, as the documents state.
