FARGO — A judge has set bond at $1 million for a Fargo man accused of killing a teenager last week near the Cass County jail
Larry Darnell Evans Jr., 25, appeared Wednesday, Aug. 12, in Cass County District Court for the first time on murder and terrorizing charges. He and Jonathan Patrick Hunt, 31, of Fargo, face life in prison without parole if convicted on charges connected to the death of Moorhead 18-year-old Cameron Camacho.
Court documents detail how an argument over the price of marijuana evolved into a fight on Aug. 3 outside an apartment building on Westrac Drive in central Fargo. An unnamed individual said Camacho attacked him with a rubber mallet, and that another person attacked him as well, court documents said.
Prosecutors allege Hunt and Evans joined the fight with a third individual. Camacho was sitting in a vehicle when Evans allegedly hit the teen several times. Hunt used a bat to hit an unnamed individual and break the windows of the vehicle Camacho was in, a criminal complaint said.
Camacho was taken to a hospital, where he died the next day, police said.
Hunt, who was charged with terrorizing and accomplice to murder, was booked Aug. 5 into the Cass County jail. He told a judge he was not involved in the beating and that someone had misidentified him as a suspect.
He is being held on a $500,000 bond.
Evans said his attorney told him to turn himself in on Tuesday. He was arrested Monday night in Wahpeton after law enforcement received a tip about his location.
He also said he has lived in Fargo since 2010, takes care of his mother, who has cancer, and has a young child he cares for with the child’s mother.
Judge Steven McCullough followed recommendations to set the $1 million bond.
Evans’ next hearing is Sept. 16. Hunt’s is Sept. 8.
Court records do not show who is representing Evans in this case.
