Teen arrested in Belton High murder now charged with assault causing bodily injury
Affidavit: Student waived rights, admitted to fatally stabbing classmate
BELTON, Texas (KWTX) - Online jail records show Caysen Tyler Allison, 18, the Belton High School student charged with murder for the killing of fellow schoolmate, is now facing an additional charge of assault causing bodily injury.
On Monday night, the additional charge was listed as “assault causing bodily injury family member.” The listed charge has since been revised to assault causing bodily injury.
An arrest affidavit states Allison waived his rights against self incrimination and admitted to detectives he fatally stabbed Jose Luis Ramirez Jr., 18, during a fight in a school restroom.
Allison remains jailed at the Bell County Jail on bonds totaling $1,015,000. KWTX is working to confirm if the additional charge stems from a previous incident.
The arrest affidavit filed against Allison states Belton Police arrived at the school located at 600 Lake Road on Tuesday, May 3, and found Ramirez with “large puncture wounds to his chest.”
Ramirez was transported to the hospital in critical condition where he was later pronounced dead. At the hospital, officers noticed Ramirez sustained “multiple stab and slashes injuries along his chest, back, legs and arm.”
Witnesses at the scene identified the student who stabbed Ramirez as Allison, who allegedly ran away from campus.
The affidavit states police also obtained video that allegedly shows Allison brandish a knife and stab Ramirez during a fight in the bathroom.
“Allison was later arrested and transported to the Belton Police Department where he provided police with a sworn statement he provided after being informed of his rights and waiving them,” the affidavit states.
In the statement to police, Allison allegedly admitted he “stabbed Ramirez Jr. once during a fight between them.”
Police were able to obtain a search warrant to search Allison’s home where they allegedly recovered a “folding knife covered in what they suspected was blood.”
