A 16-year-old girl is facing first-degree murder charges in the death of a mixed martial arts fighter killed in his surburban Boca Raton home, a source told the Palm Beach Post.

Summer Church of suburban Boca Raton is facing two counts of home invasion with a firearm or other deadly weapon as well as first-degree murder. Church was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail at about 8:15 a.m. Friday morning.

Church was indicted by a grand jury on Thursday and is facing charges as an adult. A source said there are expected to be more arrests in the case.

Aaron Rajman, 25, was shot after several men entered his home at about 10:30 p.m. July 3, according to the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office. A fight broke out and Rajman was shot before the men fled.

No mention was made by PBSO of a female participating in the shooting when it first reported the murder.

Rajman, an Orthodox Jew, made his Mixed Martial Arts debut in April 2014 and had a 2-2 record.

He was born in New York and moved with his family to Florida as a pre-schooler. A family friend said his parents later divorced, and for the past few years, he shared a home west of Boca Raton with his mother, his mother’s aunt and his younger brother.

According to the fight website Sherdog, Rajman was a 145-pound featherweight who trained at American Top Team in Coconut Creek and had an amateur record of 8-1 and a professional record of 2-2. Another site, The Underground, also said he had an amateur record of 8-1.
