BREMERTON, Wash. (AP) -- A 17-year-old boy accused of sexually assaulting and killing a 6-year-old Washington state girl is due in court today.
 
Authorities have not released the name of the teen, who's accused of killing Jenise Wright. Her body was found last Thursday, days after she disappeared from her home in a mobile home park in Kitsap County.
 
Authorities say forensic evidence linked the teen to the crime. The sheriff's office had collected DNA cheek swabs from dozens of nearby residents.
 
Jenise was last seen when she went to bed on the night of Aug. 2. Her parents waited a day before calling for help because they say the girl had wandered around the Steele Creek Mobile Home Park on her own in the past.17-year-old charged in 6-year-old's murder
