COVINGTON, Ky.-- Police arrested and charged a fourth person Tuesday in the death of a woman who was discovered dead in a wooded area area last.

The unidentified juvenile is facing charges of complicity to robbery and complicity to murder, Covington police announced Wednesday. 

Denita Satchwell, 58, was found dead in a wooded area near Rabbit Hash last Friday. She had been missing for days before then, and police said she'd left home without her medication. She had been undergoing treatment for late-stage cancer.

Police previously arrested Satchwell's cousin, Kenneth Maurice Jones, and charged him with murder, robbery and tampering with physical evidence. They have also arrested Braedon Reaves and charged him with facilitation to homicide and a second juvenile charged with murder, robbery and tampering with evidence. 

Satchwell's daughter, Amy Collins Brewer, has suspected something bad had happened. 

In a Facebook comment shortly after the alert, she wrote that her mother rarely drove because of her illness and that her home seemed to be in a state of disarray after she left.

"Her oxygen and her dog that means more than anything to her were left behind," she wrote. "These are things that my mother would not do. Her back door was also found unlocked lamps were knocked over and garbage inside her home, and (in) my heart I feel like there is some type of foul play."

Police have not confirmed these details.

The two juveniles are being held in the Campbell County Regional Juvenile Detention Center. Jones and Reaves are both being held in the Kenton County Detention Center.

Police requested that anyone with information about the case call Detective Jess Hamblin at 859-292-2375.
