Suspect in beating death of Covington teen held on $1M bail

A judge found probable cause today to hold a 26-year-old man on suspicion of second-degree murder in connection with the death Saturday of a 16-year-old boy in Covington.

The suspect, a Covington resident, is being held in the King County Jail in lieu of $1 million bail. A second court appearance is scheduled for May 15.

According to the affidavit of probable cause outlining the police case, the suspect and victim were involved in a fight around 12:30 a.m. near the suspect’s house in the 19400 block of Southeast 267th Street. Police say the suspect hit and kicked the victim in the head several times. He then dragged the victim’s body down the street away from his home, according to the affidavit.

The teen’s body was discovered by deputies in the street around 5:30 a.m. Saturday. His name has not been released by the King County Medical Examiner’s Office.
