Homeless teen faces murder charge in Texas student’s killing

A judge has set a $1 million bond for a homeless 17-year-old police say killed a University of Texas student in the heart of the campus.
Travis County Judge Brenda Kennedy signed an arrest affidavit Friday that says "there is sufficient probable cause to support the charge of murder" against Meechaiel Criner. Austin Police Chief Art Acevedo says Criner will face murder and perhaps other charges for killing first-year dance student Haruka Weiser.
Weiser, an 18-year-old Oregon native, was last seen leaving the campus drama building Sunday night. Her body showed signs of assault and was found in a creek near the alumni center and football stadium. In response to the killing, university officials requested increased police presence on campus and are working with a state agency to review security
