COLUMBIA, S.C. (WIS) - A teen accused of killing Sanaa Amenhotep has been denied bond.
On Tuesday, Treveon Jamar Nelson, 18, appeared before a judge in Columbia and was denied bond on charges of murder, 1st-degree criminal sexual conduct, kidnapping, assault and battery,
criminal conspiracy and possession of a weapon during a violent crime.
Nelson was charged along with Jaylon Wilson, 17, and another minor in connection to 15-year-old Sanaa Amenhotep’s death.
