Suspects in murder of 17-year-old Kenosha girl in court

KENOSHA COUNTY, Wis. (WDJT) -- Two young suspects charged in the strangulation of a 17-year-old Kenosha girl appeared in court Tuesday morning.

Both Jamari Cook and Daniel Tate appeared in court separately for their pretrial hearings on August 15. They are facing charges in the death of Olivia Mackay last month.

In court Tuesday, Cook waived his rights to a pretrial hearing which automatically means the judge finds probable cause of a felony. He allegedly witnessed Tate strangle Mackay and helped hide her body.

A preliminary hearing was held for Tate. Detective Kenneth Duffy with the Kenosha Police Department gave a testimony sharing what Cook told him in an interview after the body was found.

The judge concluded saying there is probable cause Tate caused the death of Olivia Mackay.

The pretrial is set for October 26 at 9 a.m. for both suspects.
