FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - A third suspect has been arrested in a home invasion case in which a girl was killed and her boyfriend was wounded in south Fort Worth.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports that the 17-year-old boy was arrested Friday.

Officials say 17-year-old Nancy Mata was pronounced dead Jan. 12 after robbers went to a residence looking for drugs and money. Investigators say 24-year-old Ricardo Casteneda Jr. was injured after being shot several times.

The suspects stole drugs, money, jewelry, electronics and other property from the home before fleeing in a vehicle.

The 17-year-old and the two other suspects, a 19-year-old and an 18-year-old, are being held in jail in lieu of $1 million bail.

Police continued their search for a fourth suspect Sunday.
