Teen accused of murder to be tried as adult

Evidence from the scene Evidence from the scene

A judge ruled today that a teen accused of murdering a South Euclid woman will be tried as an adult. 

Jeffrey Rembert, 17 was in court Friday for the murder of Jacqueline Gavorski, 65. 

Police say Rembert hit Gavorski in the head with a chunk of cement in her driveway on Ardmore to steal her purse back in July.

Witnesses found Gavorski laying face down and called police.  The chunk of cement and her purse were still at the scene.

The incident was a random act, police don't believe Rembert knew Gavorski.

The facts will be presented to the Grand Jury, now that Rembert's case has been bound over.

Rembert faces 20 years to life.
