WASHINGTON — A judge in Washington has decided four teens charged as adults in a fatal stabbing at a Metro will remain in jail until trial.

D.C. Superior Court Judge Ronna L. Beck issued the ruling on Tuesday after hearing three days of evidence from prosecutors. The judge said she had found probable cause the four 17-year-old were responsible for the robbery and killing of Olijawon Griffin.

Nine suspects were arrested following the Nov. 17 death of the 18-year-old. Police say Griffin was robbed of an iPhone and a jacket and later confronted the teens at the Metro station. A detective testified at the hearing that investigators are looking for at least three more people seen in security camera recordings.
