According to the Bernalillo County DA's Office, a hearing for 15-year-old Jeramiah Morfin is scheduled for tomorrow as prosecutors push to keep him behind bars until trial.

Police say Morfin led investigators to the girl’s body in an arroyo near Unser and Gibson over the weekend.

Investigators say the girl’s body showed signs of blunt force trauma and possible sexual assault.

According to police, Morfin left a note saying he killed her.
