Bobbish and Kudla families still waiting for charges in teens' murders

Posted: Updated:
DETROIT (WJBK) -

Hugs amid heartache, armbands worn in remembrance of Jourdan Bobbish and Jacob Kudla, the teenagers from Westland whose bodies were found in a field on Detroit's east side in July.  They had both been shot in the head.

"It's sad.  You just want your boy to come home.  You want to touch him one more time, and you want to see him smile at you.  It's just rough," said Mike Bobbish.

There was a weary smile from a sad man, the father of Jourdan Bobbish.  On Monday, his family and the Kudlas came to court only to find another delay in the case against Casey Green and Larry Anderson.  The two men are charged with larceny from a motor vehicle, obstruction of justice and tampering with evidence.  Prosecutors say they were found with items from the 2001 Chevy Cavalier the teens had been driving.  The boys were last seen leaving an uncle's house after allegedly getting drugs from him, and even though Green and Anderson have been arrested, no one has been charged with murdering the teens.

"We know they're working on it hard and they're staying in touch with us and the information that we do have sounds pretty good and promising, so we just got to hope and have faith and pray," Bobbish said.

While the families wait for information on who murdered their children, they're not sitting idly by.  They're working on raising funds to increase the reward for information leading to an arrest.  Right now, Crime Stoppers is offering a $2,500 reward, but the families are hoping to add thousands of dollars to that amount.

The number to call Crime Stoppers is 1-800-SPEAK-UP.  You can remain annonymous.
