WASHINGTON (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A 17-year-old boy accused of sexually assaulting and killing a 6-year-old Washington state girl is due in court Monday.

"Who would think it? And who would think it of a 17-year-old boy? You know, you just don't. You just don't," said Karen Gullickson.

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.
