In Denial: 15-Year-Old Suspect Denies Fatally Hitting Teen In Stolen Mini-Van

Cleveland, OH - The 15-year-old boy accused in a deadly accident appeared before a juvenile judge Thursday morning.

Devon Swift entered a plea of denial.

Swift is accused of fatally striking 17-year-old Justin Simmons Wednesday night at E. 86th & Folsom.

Police say Swift then fled the scene but was turned in a short time later by his mother.

He's due back in court next month.
