Suspect in robbery spree before murder of Demario Bailey: prosecutor

A 17-year-old boy was ordered held without bond Monday after he was charged with killing a 15-year-old over his jacket in front of his twin brother.

Three other teens were charged with murder Monday evening and are expected to appear in court Tuesday for a bond hearing.

Cook County Criminal Court Judge James Brown ruled that Carlos Johnson, 17, be held without bail in the murder of 15-year-old Demario Bailey in front of his twin brother, Demacio, after a brief hearing at the George Leighton Criminal Courts Building.

Prosecutors said at the bond hearing Monday for Johnson that they do not believe at this time that he pulled the trigger in the shooting.

The other three teens — Deafro Brakes and Isiah Penn, both 17, and Tarik Brakes, 16, each charged as adults in the murder — are expected to have bond hearings Tuesday.
