BREMERTON — A 17-year-old boy arrested in the death and sexual assault of a 6-year-old Bremerton girl is due in court Monday.
Authorities still haven’t released the name of the suspect, who was arrested Saturday in the Bremerton-area mobile home park from which Jenise Wright had disappeared a week earlier.
He was booked for investigation of second-degree murder, manslaughter and rape, and was scheduled to make an initial appearance at 3 p.m. in Kitsap County District Court.
Authorities said forensic evidence analyzed by the Washington state crime lab linked him to the crime. Earlier in the week, the sheriff’s office collected DNA cheek swabs from dozens of nearby residents.
