    Arrest warrant: Teen murdered with hammer after suspected drug deal

    DNA evidence and cell phone records link a 16-year-old boy to the murder of Kaytlynn Cargill over an alleged drug deal, according to an arrest warrant obtained by WFAA.

    The warrant said Cargill was likely murdered with a hammer before being put in a dumpster.

    According to a witness cited in the arrest warrant, she went to the dog park to take part in an exchange of marijuana with a 16-year-old suspect and his brother.

    On June 25, blood was found on several walls, the kitchen blinds and on the patio of the apartment where the suspect had been staying for two weeks before the alleged murder. Blood was also found on the head of a hammer, believed to be the murder weapon.

    DNA evidence later confirmed that blood matched Cargill’s.

    On June 26, police made contact with a man the suspect identified as his “uncle,” who is believed to have picked the suspect up after the murder.

    On August 2, police obtained a search warrant for that man’s Fort Worth apartment, where the suspect went to stay. Police searched the apartment the next day and found 17 pieces of evidence, including handwritten notes in which the suspect “conspired to establish his alibi.”

    The suspect’s girlfriend told police on Aug. 18 that she was in Alabama on the day of the murder, but that she and the suspect spoke over FaceTime about his alibi.

    Cell phone records indicate the suspect deleted calls and texts between June 17 and June 21. The warrant also cites abnormal cell phone behavior on June 19.

    Earlier Friday, Bedford police detained an unnamed 16-year-old suspect and assured the public that it wasn’t at risk.

    Teen charged with Bedford girl's murder to remain in custody

    The 16-year-old boy accused of murdering a Bedford girl will remain in custody despite another attempt by his family to seek his release.

    Jordin Roache is charged with murder for the death of Kaytlynn Cargill in an apparent dispute over a drug deal. She

    Roache’s mother asked that he be released to her during a hearing Monday afternoon in Fort Worth.

    It was the second time since his arrest that Roache and his family have been in court asking a judge to let him go home with his mother wearing an ankle monitor while the district attorney's office puts together their case.

    During the detention hearing, Roache's attorney Frank Adler told the judge that at some point he expects to dispute all of the allegations police outlined against Roache in an affidavit.

    A Tarrant County Juvenile Court judge said he had to consider the allegations and the possible risk to the community before ruling that Roache would remain in detention.

    Prosecutors Seek to Certify Accused Bedford Teen Killer As Adult

    Tarrant County prosecutors said Thursday they would ask a judge to certify a 16-year-old boy as an adult in the murder of 14-year-old Kaytlynn Cargill, of Bedford.

    Because of his age, the suspect is not eligible to be sentenced to death or life without parole, prosecutors said.

    Meanwhile, in an interview with NBC 5, the girl's father faulted police for not taking the investigation more seriously at first.

    Teen accused of using hammer to kill Bedford girl faces adult certification hearing

    A 16-year-old Fort Worth youth accused of using a hammer to beat a 14-year-old Bedford girl to death during an alleged drug deal is scheduled for an adult certification hearing Dec. 20.

    The hearing is at 1 p.m. at the Scott D. Moore Juvenile Justice Center.

    The teen already has been charged with delinquent conduct/murder in the killing of Kaytlynn Cargill in June during an alleged $300 marijuana deal at the Oak Creek West Apartments, near Pennington Field in Bedford, where she lived with her parents.

    But prosecutors said in October that they would seek to certify the Fort Worth youth as an adult. If he's certified and convicted, the teen faces stiffer penalties and would serve time as adult.

    Fort Worth teen charged in death of Bedford girl will be tried as adult

    A 16-year-old Fort Worth youth accused of using a hammer to kill a Bedford teen was certified Wednesday to stand trial as an adult.

    Jordin Roache was rushed out of the courtroom Wednesday afternoon after Judge Tim Menikos reached his decision following an almost four-hour hearing.

    Roache’s mother testified Wednesday afternoon her son was a normal teen-aged boy who occasionally got into fights and he denied killing Kaytlynn.

    But prosecutors noted Roache had a temper problem with a history of fighting.

    Since he was taken into custody on Sept. 1 at O.D. Wyatt High School in Fort Worth, Roache had had two physical fights with other juveniles and one verbal confrontation with another juvenile resident.

    The 16-year-old boy accused of killing a 14-year-old Bedford girl last year and leaving her body in a dumpster will be moved to the adult jail system next week.

    Jordin Leesean Roache, who police say beat Kaytlynn Cargill to death with a hammer over a drug deal, was certified to stand trial as an adult in December. He will be moved out of juvenile detention on March 30 — his 17th birthday — the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

    Teen accused in killing of Bedford girl with hammer to be examined for mental illness

    A Bedford teen accused of using a hammer to kill another teen in 2017 has been ordered to be examined for mental illness or intellectual disability, according to court records.

    Jordin Roache, 18, was ordered by the court last month to be examined to determine if he is competent to stand trial in the beating death of 14-year-old Kaytlynn Cargill, whose body was found in an Arlington landfill.

    Officials with Mental Health Mental Retardation (MHMR) of Tarrant County will collect information on Roache including any information from any previous assessment of the suspect, according to Tarrant County criminal court records filed in the case.

    The order was issued April 9, but no information was available Wednesday on the status of the examination.
