Judge: 10-year-old involved in arson, Missouri boy’s death

September 12, 2019

ST. JOSEPH, Mo. (AP) — A judge has found enough evidence existed to believe a 10-year-old boy was involved in the death of a 14-year-old boy whose body was found in a burned out house.

The St. Joseph News-Press reports the judge found the boy committed involuntary manslaughter and arson in the death of Cameron Satterley.

Investigators believe Satterley died in a house fire on Feb. 20 but his body was not found until April 25.

A hearing will be held Sept. 24 to determine whether the boy should be placed on probation or turned over to juvenile authorities.

An 11-year-old boy charged in the case is scheduled for a court hearing Nov. 13. A judge earlier dismissed a charge of abandonment of a corpse against a third minor.
