Bond for the man accused of killing 15-year-old Dennis King has been set $500,000. 

Malik Terrell, 21, has been charged with first degree intentional homicide. 

According to a graphic criminal complaint, a relative inside a home near 12th & Keefe told investigators he saw Terrell beat King with a hammer and stab him, repeatedly, in the throat. 

The fight was reportedly over a video game robbery.

Investigators also allege Terrell moved the teen’s body into a vacant house down the street and tried to burn it. 

Police say Terrell then fled to Chicago where he was arrested.
