PORTLAND -- The 17-year-old Portland man accused of killing his great-grandmother was in court Wednesday to face aggravated murder charges.

Deputies said Joda Cain and his cousin, 19-year-old Micus Ward, killed 71-year-old Jacqueline Bell in her Cedar Mill home earlier this month.

Cain pleaded not guilty in court Wednesday. He is charged with aggravated felony murder.

The teens led police on a high-speed chase in Bell's car before they were pulled over and arrested.
