The teenager who was out on bond on a criminal homicide charge will spend the next week on house arrest after she was arrested and charged with another crime.

The Davidson County District Attorney asked to revoke Myeisha Brown’s bond, but the case was continued until next week.

Brown, 18, was arrested Friday and charged with theft of a vehicle and drug offenses. She posted the assigned $20,000 bond and was released. 

Brown 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.
