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.
