A teenager accused of leading authorities on a pursuit after a carjacking incident has waived his formal arraignment in Miller County. Kayondez Avalo is charged with first-degree robbery and armed criminal action after allegedly stealing a truck at gunpoint near Eldon. His preliminary hearing in Miller County is scheduled for February 27th. Avalo is also charged in Morgan County with possession of a controlled substance, resisting arrest, and unlawful use of a weapon. Those charges resulted from the same incident. He’s scheduled to stand trial in Morgan County in July.
