BRIGHTON, Colo. -- The teen accused of killing 10-year-old Kiaya Campbell will be tried as an adult.

15-year-old Aidan Zellmer's transfer hearing began last week inside an Adams County courtroom and on Tuesday, the district attorney decided to move the case to adult court.

Denver7 is identifying Zellmer because he's being tried as an adult.

Kiaya Campbell went missing last June after leaving her dad's home in Thornton with a 15-year-old. Hours later, Thornton Police discovered the girl's body lying face down in the grass at a Thornton park.
