Teen charged in death of Teresa Robinson appears in court
WINNIPEG — The 15-year-old teen charged with first-degree murder in the death of Teresa Robinson, 11, appeared in court briefly Monday afternoon at the Manitoba Youth Centre.
The teen, who cannot be named because of the Youth Criminal Justice Act, was arrested without incident in Garden Hill First Nation on Thursday.
Family members of the teen expressed anger towards the media, asking them to leave. The 15-year-old only appeared briefly with his head down.
Robinson’s remains were found in a forested area near the community more than 10 months ago.

DNA samples were voluntarily taken from men between the ages of 15 and 66 in Garden Hill, to help with the investigation.
Police aren’t saying whether or not the boy charged provided a sample. The teen is expected to appear in court again April 6.
