BALTIMORE CO. Md. (WJZ) — A not guilty plea was entered for one of the four teenagers arrested in connection with the death of Baltimore County police officer Amy Caprio.
At Darrell Ward’s arraignment Monday, a judge entered the not guilty plea for him because Ward does not yet have representation.
The three other teen suspects – Dawnta Harris, Eugene Genius, and Derrick Matthews – all face up to life in prison if found guilty, along with Ward.
Police said the teens were burglarizing a home when Caprio responded to the neighborhood.
Defense attorney Warren Brown represents 16-year-old Harris, who police struck officer Caprio in a stolen Jeep while the other teens ransacked a home.
