Bailey on trial for 2017 murder of Chase Anderson


Clearfield, PA – One of the men accused of being involved in the 2017 murder of Chase Anderson is now on trial.

19-year-old Anderson from Curwensville was killed four years ago in August 2017, and his body was burned in a remote area of Clearfield County.

One of the men accused of the murder, 41-year-old Denny Bailey, is standing trial this week on charges of criminal homicide, assault, kidnapping to inflict terror, conspiracy, and other charges.

26-year-old Kenja Tew, who is also accused in the murder, will likely have his trial sometime after Bailey’s trial is completed.

Kenja Tew of Clearfield and Denny Bailey of Woodland both face criminal homicide charges in the murder of Chase Anderson. Chantell Demi faces charges of criminal conspiracy.

19-year-old Chase Anderson’s body was found on Aug. 26 in the woods in Pike Township, Clearfield County.

Although police had taken suspects into custody in August 2017 as they were investigating the murder, charges weren’t actually filed until April 3, 2018

Anderson had reportedly been working for Bailey and was delivering meth and other drugs from Pittsburgh.

After multiple interviews with the suspects and witnesses, Bailey and Tew eventually took responsibility for Anderson’s murder. They allegedly stabbed him multiple times before setting fire to his body.

Joseph Ralston of Curwensville was reportedly involved in destroying evidence. Ralston and Demi were allegedly told by Bailey to set fire to a vehicle owned by Bailey’s mother.
