NEW CITY - A Spring Valley teen was indicted on murder and robbery charges in the death of a Guatemalan immigrant.

Jiwan Coleman, 16, appeared before Judge David Zuckerman Thursday morning in Rockland County Court and was indicted on two counts of second-degree murder and one count of robbery.

Coleman was arrested and charged in the June 26 attack on 18-year-old Ruben Suchite-Torres.
