HOUSTON (AP) — Houston police have found evidence of occult activity as two teens face capital murder charges in the weekend slaying of a 15-year-old girl.

Harris County jail records show 17-year-old Jose E. Reyes was being held without bond Tuesday. Online jail records do not list an attorney for Reyes, who was booked Monday.

Houston police say a 16-year-old boy was arrested Monday and remains in custody facing a capital murder count in juvenile court.

The body was discovered early Saturday in an unoccupied apartment when another resident noticed the door to the vacant unit was open. Investigators say the partly clothed girl suffered head trauma and allegedly was sexually assaulted.

A police statement says evidence indicating occult activity was found in the apartment and on the girl’s body. Details weren’t released.
