7th suspect in murder of 9-year-old Cleveland girl issued $1 million bond

CLEVELAND– The seventh and final suspect in the murder of 9-year-old Saniyah Nicholson appeared in court Friday.

Authorities took 20-year-old Timothy Greene into custody at his family’s house on East 160th Street in Cleveland Wednesday, the U.S. Marshals Service said.

He pleaded not guilty to a charge of aggravated murder and was issued $1 million bond.

Saniyah was killed on June 20 while sitting in a car with her sister at Lee Road and Cloverside Avenue. The girl’s mother went into DNA Boxing Club to pick up her brother when a fight broke out between two groups.

The suspects shot at each other from across the street and Saniyah was caught in the crossfire. She suffered a gunshot wound to the head.

In the days following, Cleveland police arrested Ce’Matizea Andrews, 19, Davontae Nettles, 19, and Aaron George, 18, as well as three juveniles.
