12-year-old charged in St. Joseph teen’s death

ST. JOSEPH, Mo. (AP) — A juvenile court judge has ruled enough evidence exists to prove two of the three charges against a 12-year-old in the death of a 14-year-old boy.

The boy was 11 when he was charged in the death of Cameron Satterley, who died in a house fire in St. Joseph in February. His body wasn’t found until April.

The judge ruled Tuesday that evidence proved the boy committed involuntary manslaughter and arson.

The St. Joseph News-Press reports after the judge’s ruling Tuesday, a disposition hearing was scheduled for Dec. 4 to decide what will happen to him.

The boy is one of three juveniles charged in Satterley’s death. One juvenile was dismissed from the case in May. In September, a 10-year-old was committed to state youth service for committing arson and involuntary manslaughter.
