Adam Longoria charged with murder of 14-year-old ALicia DeBolt

GREAT BEND —Prosecutors today charged Adam Longoria with capital murder in the death of 14-year-old Alicia DeBolt.

In a brief appearance this morning in Barton County District Court, the 36-year-old former Texas prison inmate was told that he was also being charged with criminal sodomy. The charges say the crimes took place on or about Aug. 21 or 22, after the Great Bend cheerleader left home and was reportedly seen getting into a vehicle.

After the hearing, Attorney General Steve Six said he did not anticipate charging anyone else in Alicia's death.

The capital murder charge alleges that she was killed "during the commission of, or subsequent to, the crime of criminal sodomy."
