PORT ORCHARD, Wash. – A judge has found probable cause to detain a 17-year-old boy under investigation in the death and sexual assault of a six-year-old girl.

Prosecutors in Kitsap County filed court documents Monday saying they had enough evidence to hold Gabriel Gaeta on suspicion of first-degree murder with aggravating circumstances, felony murder and first-degree rape of a child.

Judge Kevin Hull set bail at $1 million.

Gaeta arrived at Kitsap County Superior Court with a black jacket over his head. He spoke softly as he answered Hull’s question.

The judge also granted prosecutors’ request for a mental-health evaluation for the teen.

A message left with Gaeta’s lawyer was not immediately returned.

The parents of Jenise Wright attended the hearing and sat in the second row.
