Next Hearing Set for Teen Charged with Killing Grandmother
FULTON - The attorneys handling the case of 17-year-old Ryan Koebel met Friday morning for a hearing in Fulton. Koebel is charged with killing his grandmother Karen Cates of Holts Summit. Koebel did not appear in court Friday.
Instead, Callaway County Prosecutor Chris Wilson and public defender Justin Carver met to discuss Koebel's next appearance hearing. Carver said that hearing is set for March 23 at 9 a.m. at the Callaway County courthouse.
Both Wilson and Carver are still not releasing Koebel's location because of security concerns, but said that doesn't mean people have threatened Koebel.
Wilson charged Koebel with first degree murder, four counts of armed criminal action in the first degree and three counts of assaulting a law enforcement officers in the first degree.
