Two teenagers charged in the murder of missing Casady High School student, Annie Hill, 16, were formally arraigned in Oklahoma County District Court.

Chadd Raymond, a 16-year-old Edmond Santa Fe High School student, didn't have much to say during his first appearance before a judge.

During the video arraignment, Judge Russell Hall told Raymond that his bond was denied due to the severity of the charges. Raymond is charged with one count of murder in the first-degree for allegedly strangling Hill in Edmond last April.

The state's case against him and his alleged accomplice, 17-year-old Chloe Thomas, elaborates on the events leading up to the murder.

Thomas, who is charged as an accessory in the murder, admitted they were all watching movies at an alleged drug dealer's apartment. She said when Hill decided to leave that Chadd Raymond attacked Hill, strangling her until she died.

Raymond and Thomas then allegedly used Hill's car and drove out to an unknown wooded area to dispose of her body.

Thomas confessed they covered her up with sticks and brush and then drove her car back to park it near the apartments. Neither one of them spoke of the crime for six months.

Thomas confessed on Oct. 10 and was arrested. Raymond was arrested the next day. Both are being held without bond in the Oklahoma County Jail. Their next court date is set for Nov. 9.

Investigators are still searching for Hill's body. If you have any information call Oklahoma City Police Crime Stoppers (405) 235-7300.
