Philip Chism, 14, charged last month with the murder, aggravated rape, and armed robbery of his Danvers High School teacher Colleen Ritzer, pleaded not guilty to all charges on Dec. 4 in Superior Court.
According to The Boston Herald, the teen’s lawyer agreed today with the prosecution’s request that Chism remain held in jail without bail.
After Colleen Ritzer’s brutal and violent Oct. 22 murder inside a Danvers High School bathroom, the beloved math teacher’s body was stuffed into a recycling bin, rolled out of the high school, and dumped about 20 feet into some woods behind the Mass. high school.
A chilling death note that 14-year-old alleged killer Phillip Chism scrawled on a piece of paper was found folded and near 24-year-old Colleen Ritzer’s body. The note simply stated, "I hate you all."
Police still haven’t revealed a motive for the killing of teacher.
Recently released court documents revealed a “gruesome and vicious” murder scenario.
According to ABC News, an affidavit used to garner a search warrant of Chism’s home, computers, and school books detailed that:
Ritzer's body was "sexually staged," and she was naked from the waist down with her bra pulled below her waist. Her remains were sexually assaulted with a branch and the body was covered with leaves and debris.
