A judge has ruled that a 16-year-old accused in the death of a northwest Missouri man who was bound, stabbed and left to bleed to death in a restroom will remain in juvenile custody.
The youth faces charges of first-degree murder, felony kidnapping, robbery and three counts of armed criminal action in the death of 58-year-old Mark Thomas, who was found dead last weekend in a restroom at Smithville Lake.
A Clay County judge ruled Thursday after a brief hearing. Another hearing will be held Feb. 6 to determine if the boy will face charges as an adult.
