AKRON, Ohio - One of the men accused in the tragic death of 11-year-old Carmella Holley made his first court appearance Saturday morning.
Terrance Roane, 18, was arraigned by video in a Summit County courtroom.
Roane is charged with one count of murder. The judge set his bond at $1 million.
On Friday afternoon, Akron police arrested Roane, 18, and charged him with murder. Authorities also named the other man who they believe to have been involved in the tragic shooting death of 11-year-old Carmella Holley.
A warrant has been issued for the arrest of Vernon Singleton, 25, who police consider armed and dangerous. Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Singleton is asked to contact APD at (330) 375-2490.
Holley was struck and killed by a stray bullet on Wednesday afternoon. Authorities said a fight began outside the Hillwood Apartments on Keys Place and ended in gunfire.
Holley was watching TV inside her sister’s apartment when one of the bullets came through the wall and hit her in the back. The 11-year-old died later that night at Akron Children's Hospital.
The Holley family has set up a trust fund at FirstMerit Bank in the name of Carmella Holley. Donations can be made to any branch and will help support the memorial service.
Meanwhile, police continue to seek witnesses who have any information about the shooting.
