Suspect in girl’s 2009 murder held without bail

A man accused in a murder from five years ago appeared in court Thursday.

Rene Valentin-Matos is charged with the murder and rape of 12-year-old Jehmeshia Conner in 2009.

DNA evidence found on the girl, as well as a 2011 rape and murder victim, led police to the suspect.

The judge in Thursday’s hearing ordered Valentin-Matos to be held without bail.

Conner’s mother, who was at the hearing, said she was glad that he’ll remain behind bars.
