SALISBURY — A teen charged in late August in the shooting death of a Kannapolis man found dead in his car will have to make a $600,000 bond if he wants to get out of jail.
Superior Court Judge Anna Mills Wagoner set Quamaine Deshawn Patterson’s bond this morning during a hearing.
Patterson, 18, is charged with killing Rigoberto Angeles-Resendiz, 21, who was found with a gunshot wound to the head. Elementary school students and a bus driver found the victim dead in his car with the door open on Foster Lane, off Morlan Park Road.
Patterson turned himself in to authorities a day after the victim was found dead.
Patterson’s attorney, Michael Adkins, sought a bond closer to $50,000 saying his client had never been charged or convicted of a violent crime. Patterson has been convicted of various misdemeanors.
Rowan District Attorney Brandy Cook requested the judge set Patterson’s bond at a minimum of $500,000.
Judge Wagoner said because of the serious nature of the crime she would set such a bond.
Patterson was indicted on first-degree murder charges by a grand jury in mid-September.
Another teen, Andrina Jamir Walker, 17, has been charged in connection with the crime.
Walker is accused of using a gun to threaten and attempt to rob Angeles-Resendiz.
She has since been released under a $100,000 bond.
A 15-year-old linked to the incident was also charged.
