After teen murder suspect Myeisha Brown was arrested on new charges, the state requested that a judge revoke her bond after she was placed on house arrest by Judge Angelita Blackshear-Dalton last week at arraignment.
Brown, 18, was arrested Friday, March 29, and charged with theft of a vehicle and drug offenses. She posted the assigned $20,000 bond and was released.
She has been out of jail since February after posting bond for charges related to Ruxin Wang’s murder. Money to pay that bond was raised on a crowdfunding website.
Police arrested and charged Brown with Wang’s murder when she was 16. Officials say He was shot and killed while walking from his house in South Nashville to the road to get his trash can.
After considering evidence, Judge Jennifer Smith denied the state’s bond revocation request on Brown’s new charges.
However, the judge found that Brown violated the conditions of her release by using illegal drugs and committed criminal offenses while out on bond.
The updated conditions of her pre-trial release are now as follows:
- Confined to house arrest with GPS monitoring, which means she’s allowed to go to work, support meetings, education appointments, meetings with lawyer & doctor
- Brown must be accompanied by someone on support list when going to these approved outings
- Support team must submit her schedule to court
- She must attend a drug treatment program
- Not allowed to have any one-on-one interaction with peers
