Three Florida teens have been charged with murdering a professional mixed martial arts fighter.
On Saturday, a judge in Palm Beach County denied bond to Summer Church, 16 and 18-year-olds Roberto Ortiz and Jace Swinton. According to CBS News, all have been as charged as adults for the first-degree murder of 25-year-old Aaron Rajman, who was killed in his Boca Raton home.
"This was no random act of violence," State Attorney Dave Aronberg told CBS affiliate WPEC. "Mr. Rajman was targeted by these defendants, and we intend to seek justice for the victim and his family."
Judi Church, Summer’s mother, told local media that cops are accusing Summer of being the mastermind. However, the mother told the Florida Sun-Sentinel that a group of men, including Ortiz and Swinton, forced her daughter at gunpoint to get in a car and call Rajman to see if he was home before his fatal shooting.

“I’m grateful they were caught,” Emily Imber, Rajman’s former girlfriend, told Palm Beach Post on Friday. “I hope they get all of them. This has been devastating.”
Rajman had a 2-2 record since becoming a professional fighter.
A GoFundMe.com account has been created for Rajman’s funeral.
