Teenager Charged In Slaying To Stay In Jail

Posted: Updated:
Vicksburg -

A Vicksburg teenager charged in the death of her stepmother has been denied bond.            

The Vicksburg Post reports that attorney Marshal Sanders told Circuit Judge Isadore Patrick that a psychologist has completed a court-ordered mental evaluation on the teenager.            

Still, Patrick said Friday, he would not grant bail.            

No trial date has been set.            

The girl, now 17, has been held without bail in the Warren County Jail since December 2011 when her bonding agent revoked her $75,000 bail.            

Authorities say the body of 32-year-old Michelle Vega was found May 2, 2011, in the family home in Vicksburg. Authorities say neighbors reported seeing the girl drive away from the home minutes before her stepbrother returned and found his mother's body.            

The girl was arrested in Greenville six days later.
