Fourth person arrested in murder
NORTH COVENTRY » A Berks County man has been arrested for the murder of a teenager last September in Chester County.
North Coventry Police announced on the department’s website they have charged a fourth individual believed to be involved in the murder of 17-yearold David Doyle on Sept. 24, 2017.
Juan Jerry Ortiz-Encarnacion, 27, of Reading, was recently charged in the murder after three others, identified as Ricardo “Hov” Rivera of Reading, Anaye Raggazino, 31, of Philadelphia, and Jonathan “Chicken Wing” Malave, of Reading, were charged earlier this year.
Police allege that Raggazino, a drug addict, decided that it would be “an easy score” to rob him, stealing drugs and money. She recruited three men to conduct the robbery — defendants Rivera, Malave and Ortiz-Encarnacion, police said.
On Sept. 24, Raggazino made contact with the residence in North Coventry. Raggazino, Rivera, Malave, and Ortiz-Encarnacion drove to the residence. Raggazino’s role was to get into the residence and make sure the door was unlocked. Rivera and Ortiz Encarnacion would come in and conduct the armed robbery. Malave was the getaway driver, authorities said.
The victim, Doyle, was staying over at the residence that night. He was sleeping in the living room with three young children, ages 9, 8, and 3. Raggazino eventually got into the residence and left the door unlocked. Rivera and the other male entered, brandishing a gun and wearing masks.
The 17-year-old Doyle jumped up to try to protect the children, and got into a struggle with Rivera, who allegedly fired twice, hitting Doyle in the torso and sending the other shot through the ceiling, according to police. All of the defendants fled. Doyle was transported to Reading Hospital in West Reading, where he was pronounced dead the next day.
All four individuals have been charged with criminal homicide, second- and third-degree murder, robbery, conspiracy, burglary, possession of an instrument of crime with intent and possession of a weapon.
Raggazino was additionally charged with recklessly endangering another person. Rivera was additionally charged with firearms not to be carried without a license, possession of firearms prohibited and manufacture, delivery or possession with intent.
Ortiz-Encarnacion is scheduled for a preliminary hearing on Sept. 21 before District Judge Analisa Sondergaard. The case is being prosecuted by First Assistant District Attorney Michael Noone and Assistant District Attorney Michelle Barrone.
