JOHNS CREEK, Ga. (AP) - New details on the death of a Georgia teen were released Wednesday and the man accused of covering up her death was denied bond, according to court records.

Shawn Mark Anthony Saleem, 25, was charged with concealing the death of another and contributing to the delinquency of minors in the death of 16-year-old Carly Brooke Jackson, news outlets reported. He was denied bond Wednesday and will remain in Fulton County Jail until his trial.

New details from a police affidavit said Jackson and a friend were at Saleem‘s home in Johns Creek “doing drugs and having sex” on Feb. 13. The friend told authorities the pair consumed oxycodone, marijuana and “Lean,” a drink that combines codeine, promethazine and cold medications, court records said.

She said she went to sleep first and Jackson later followed, but in the morning, Jackson was unresponsive, authorities said.

While “playing with his dog,” Saleem told the friend Jackson was unmoving for hours but he didn’t call 911 because there were drugs in the home, court documents said.

Saleem moved Jackson’s body to a breezeway at the apartment complex and later, he and the friend told police they found her outside, authorities said.

The friend revealed the lie during questioning, records said.

Authorities later searched Saleem‘s home and found drugs, vomit and bodily fluids, records said. An arrest warrant was filed and Saleem turned himself in Tuesday.

The friend was not identified because she isn’t being charged with a crime. It’s unclear whether Saleem had an attorney who would comment on his behalf.
