Teenage murder suspect speaks from jail, Tracy Clemons reports.



Daniel Gerding, 18, was shot and killed back in January.

Deleon has been in Harris County Jail since March, when she was charged with capital murder for her alleged role in Gerding's death.

Deputies said Deleon and a 16-year-old boy attempted to rob Gerding and another teen outside the movie theater on Highway 6 and West Road back in January.

At one point, the 16-year-old boy pulled out a gun and shot both teens. Gerding died as a result of his injuries. His friend, Colyn Timmons, was shot in the face.



Deleon was charged after deputies said they connected her and the 16-year-old co-defendant to an aggravated assault in Jersey Village.
