ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – The state is pushing to keep a 14-year-old accused of murdering his cousin behind bars.
Jevyn Steadman is charged with first-degree murder for the death of 29-year-old Lawrence Howard last week. This is Howard from a story KRQE News 13 did in 2018 about him working to clean up his neighborhood.
According to court documents, Steadman was showing off a stolen gun to his family at an apartment near San Pedro and Kathryn, when an argument broke out and he fired the shot.
A judge is scheduled to decide Tuesday whether he will stay locked up until trial.
