A bond hearing was scheduled this week for a Rockwall man, indicted alongside a Royse City woman in connection with the death last fall of a Hunt County teenager.
Damien Christian Osborn, 19, was charged on one count of murder involving the death of Ismael Rincon, 15, of Greenville, after previously receiving an indictment on a separate charge of aggravated assault.
Osborn entered pleas to both counts during an Aug, 29 arraignment hearing in the 196th District Court, after which defense attorney Mitchell Dooley requested a hearing to consider Osborn’s bond on the charges. The hearing was scheduled in the court Wednesday morning.
Osborn remained in custody in the Hunt County Detention Center Tuesday, being held in lieu of a total of $1 million bond.
Osborn was indicted on both charges in February by the Hunt County grand jury. The murder charge was made public following Osborn being placed in custody in the jail and being served with the indictment on July 9.
Lauren Brooke Bohme was indicted in February on a charge of capital murder and has pleaded not guilty. A hearing on discovery evidence is scheduled Sept. 10 in the 196th District Court.
Bohme, 19, was being held in the Hunt County Detention Center Monday in lieu of $1 million bond.
Bohme was taken into custody in Colorado in mid-January by the United States Marshal’s Service.
Both Osborn’s and Bohme’s indictments allege they caused the death of a John Doe, identified as Rincon by the Greenville Police Department, on Sept. 30, 2020 by stabbing him with a knife, while in the course of committing or attempting to commit a burglary of a habitation.
The initial aggravated assault indictment filed against Osborn alleged he used a motor vehicle as a deadly weapon to strike a female victim on Sept. 30, 2020. Osborn was also arrested alongside Bohme in Colorado, but was not immediately booked into the Hunt County jail.
Greenville Police Department officers were dispatched at around 12:15 a.m. Sept. 30 to a reported aggravated assault in the 4200 block of King Street in Greenville. Rincon was hospitalized due to his injuries, and was reported to have died on the night of Nov. 23, 2020.
Warrants had also been issued for Bohme concerning her arrest in November 2019 by the Royse City Police Department on two counts of possession of a controlled substance. Bohme had an attorney appointed to represent her on the charges and was released on a total of $35,000 bond.
