COVINGTON, KENTUCKY (FOX19) - The first of three suspects charged in connection with the homicide of a Northern Kentucky woman undergoing chemotherapy will remain locked up on a $1 million bond, a judge ruled Monday.

Kenneth Jones, 38, briefly appeared in a Kenton County courtroom at 8:30 a.m.

His bond must be paid in full in cash, the judge ordered, due to the seriousness of the crime.

Jones is due back in court June 26 at 1:30 p.m.

He was arrested Friday and booked into the Kenton County jail on charges of murder, robbery and tampering with evidence. He also faces a probation violation charge for a felony offense, according to jail records.

He is the third person in custody in connection with the homicide of Denita Satchwell of Covington, 58.

A teenager is being held on charges of murder, attempted robbery and tampering with evidence at the Campbell County Juvenile Detention Facility. The teen's name has not been released.

The third suspect, Braedon Reaves, was charged with facilitation to homicide.

He remains locked up at the Kenton County jail on a $50,000, bond, records show. Reaves is scheduled to appear in court at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday.

Satchwell was reported missing a little over a week ago.

Covington police put out a Golden Alert for her on June 12 because she needed time-sensitive medication that she did not have with her.

Her body found in a wooded area near Rabbit Hash on Thursday.

It isn't clear whether the suspects and victim knew each other, authorities have said.
