Judge: New Jersey brothers accused of killing girl will remain detained

Two teenage brothers accused of killing a 12-year-old New Jersey girl were ordered Friday to remain in a juvenile detention center at least for the next two weeks, a prosecutor's office spokesman said.

Superior Court Judge Colleen Maier remanded the brothers, ages 15 and 17, to stay in the detention center because she felt it would be "contrary to the well-being of the juveniles” to free them, said Bernie Weisenfeld, a spokesman for the Gloucester County Prosecutor's Office.

Autumn Pasquale, 12, was found dead Monday in Clayton, a southern New Jersey community of about 8,000 people roughly 25 miles south of Philadelphia. Her alleged killers turned themselves in Tuesday, accompanied by their attorneys.
