Jordan was reported missing on Aug. 6 and officers found his body “intentionally concealed” inside the home in Denver’s Montbello neighborhood just before 9 p.m. the next night.

The teen, Jordan’s aunt, remained in custody on Monday. Denver District Attorney Beth McCann plans to charge the teen as an adult with one count of first-degree murder after deliberation.
