Teen accused of raping 5-year-old to undergo psychological testing

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - The 13-year-old boy who is accused of raping a 5-year-old girl appeared in juvenile court on Tuesday.

The teen will undergo psychological testing after his attorney questioned his competency.

His next court date is scheduled for Dec. 7. He will remain in the Hamilton County Juvenile Detention Center until then. His attorney has asked that he be released back to his parents, but the judge has refused.

Prosecutors say that the teen sexually assaulted a 5-year-old girl at the McDonald's on Beechmont Avenue on Oct. 29. The boy's parents turned the teen in after surveillance photos were released.
