UPDATE: CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - The second suspect in a high-profile Cleveland murder case went before a judge Friday morning.

Latesha Santos is charged in the murder of Angel Bradley-Crockett. She pleaded not guilty to the charge. Her bond was set at a staggering $2.5M dollars.

Bradley-Crockett - a mother of three - was found naked, bloodied and beaten along I-90 on April 5th.

Another suspect has already been charged in the case. 30-year-old Stephon Davis indicted on aggravated murder, kidnapping, aggravated robbery, tampering with evidence and gross abuse of a corpse charges.

Davis faces the death penalty if convicted. He also appeared before a judge Friday morning and pleaded not guilty. Davis was denied bond.

The latest development comes as the cops in the case were cleared of any criminal wrongdoing. Patrolmen Matthew Prince and David Muniz under heavy scrutiny after failing to recognize Bradley-Crockett's body on I-90. They mistook the body for that of a dead deer.

The city prosecutor called the officers lack of judgement a "performance issue" and not a crime. He says their mistake didn't play any role in the Bradley-Crockett's death.

The officers will, however, face internal discipline.
