Teen’s accused murderer in court

Richard Hooten informed of possible charges, held without bond



Willenborg’s boyfriend told police that he sold Hooten alcohol Friday, according to the affidavit. The boyfriend also said that he had talked Willenborg about 11:30 p.m. Friday, and Willenborg had told him she had sold more alcohol to Hooten and another man in the neighboring apartment.

Hooten’s girlfriend told police that Willenborg’s boyfriend came to her apartment at about 3 a.m. Saturday wanting to call 911, at which time Hooten “grabbed his clothes and left the apartment,” according to the affidavit.

A physical description of Hooten was given to officers, and he was later found Saturday walking along Eastern Boulevard and taken into custody.

During his arrest Saturday morning, police discovered Hooten was wanted on two warrants issued out of Clark County for failure to appear for unrelated case proceedings. The cases involved Hooten failing to register as a sex offender and possession of methamphetamine.
