BREMERTON, Wash. (AP) — A 17-year-old boy accused of sexually assaulting and killing a 6-year-old Washington state girl is due in court today.

Authorities have not released the name of the teen, who's accused of killing Jenise Wright.

Her body was found last Thursday, days after she disappeared from her home in a mobile home park in Kitsap County.
