HONOLULU (KHNL) - An Oahu grand jury has found enough evidence to send an Ewa Beach boy's murder case to trial.

Prosecutors presented their case to the panel Thursday morning. Homicide investigators later emerged from the closed-door hearing.

The grand jury indicted Vernon Bartley, 16, on 10 charges, including murder, sex assault, robbery and burglary. He's accused of raping and killing his neighbor, Karen Ertell, 51, last year.
