Officials say the court found probable cause for the charges.

He will be held at the Warren Regional Juvenile Detention Center in Bowling Green until his next court date May 26.

Corban, 15, was found with single gunshot wound in the 1500 Block of West 5th Street in Aug. 2020.

The teen who is now facing murder and other charges was arrested Tuesday.

“Just in a matter of a couple of hours, we were able to go from still being a case we were working on but weren’t prepared to charge anybody on. To having the forensic evidence to charge the juvenile at that point,” Officer Andrew Boggess with the Owensboro Police Department said.

Nancy Henry, Corban’s mother spoke with 14 News.

“Walking the streets and screaming justice for Corbin right after my son dies, that was heart-wrenching,” Henry said. “I feel a lot of relief right now. The streets in Owensboro are a lot safer now thanks to the detectives.”

Nancy says she’s finding ways to make peace with her pain.

“One way that were finding peace through this is with the Corban World Changers Group - where we go out into the community and do good things,” Henry said. “Do public services, try to help people, try to help the earth. Anything like Corban would’ve done.”
