(CNN) – A 17-year-old student was formally charged Tuesday with the kidnapping, sexual assault and murder of 10-year-old Jessica Ridgeway, whose body parts were found at a park in a Denver suburb earlier this month.

The Arapahoe Community College student was also charged with attempted kidnapping, attempted sexual assault and attempted murder of a female jogger last May.
