CHARLOTTE, N.C. — A clerical error let a Charlotte teen accused of murder back out on the streets.
Sergio Coello-Perez is facing charges for the May death of Nicholas Boger. Coello-Perez was 16 years old at the time of the homicide.
Police said Boger was shot after confronting two suspects who were trying to steal his car.
In May, Coello-Perez appeared before a judge and was never granted bond, but he was able to be released with a written promise to appear yesterday due to the error.
He was apprehended and was back in jail late Friday afternoon.
