KENOSHA (CBS 58) -- A 17-year-old Milwaukee teen made her first court appearance for a bond hearing.

The suspect will likely face charges for the death of Randall Valor, who was found dead inside his home last Tuesday.

CBS 58 has decided not to name or show the suspect since she has not yet been charged.

According to the district attorney, she went over Valor’s home to pick up a computer but before leaving she pulled out a gun, ordered him to sit in a chair and shot him.

“She indicated that she didn’t know if he was alive or dead at the time but she had seen television shows where she had seen people covering their crimes and decided to light the residence on fire,” said Mike Graveley, Kenosha District Attorney.

According to Graveley, the suspect got in his car and drove to Milwaukee. Investigators found the car and evidence linking the suspect to the crime.

When they searched her social media accounts, they found a Facebook live of the suspect admitting to the crime.

“She had broadcast on Facebook live several hours after the homicide admitting she had shot someone recently. There were people in the car shushing her, quiet her as she made those admissions,” said Graveley.

The district attorney said she likely will face first-degree intentional homicide and arson. She will be back in court on Wednesday, June 13. Her bond was set at $1 million.
