ELKTON, Md. — A man charged with the rape and murder of a 10-year-old Cecil County girl has been ordered held without bond following a bail review hearing.

Friday’s bail hearing means 29-year-old Richard E. Madden Jr. will remain in custody on charges of assaulting and killing Kami Ring.

Madden is scheduled for a preliminary hearing on July 12.

Authorities say Ring died of blunt force trauma and asphyxia. Her body was found Monday evening in a field near a Port Deposit home where she’d been staying with a couple whom she considered her grandparents, even though they were not biologically related to the child. Madden is the couple’s son.
