No bond for suspect in slaying of 9-year-old girl

But Temple Terrace police detectives said that during the course of the investigation into the slaying, they discovered Ritchie had sex with a 17-year-old girl four times between April 15 and May 4. That’s a crime, and coupled with the marijuana charge they amount to a violation of conditions in a pre-trial intervention program Ritchie was set to enter after an unrelated February drug arrest, Tharpe said.

Because of the violation, Ritchie will remain in jail without bail on the sex charge and marijuana charge, Tharpe said. The judge also revoked Ritchie’s bail for the February arrest.
