SIDNEY — A dispute over a text message has left a Sidney teen dead and another teen charged with murder.

According to Sidney Police Department Capt. Jerry Tangeman, Sidney first responders were dispatched to 701 Dingman St. at approximately 10:17 p.m. Thursday in regards to a stabbing. Upon arrival, officers found Cody Powers, 15, with a serious knife wound to his stomach area.

Powers was transported to Wilson Health for initial treatment and then transferred to Miami Valley Hospital in Dayton. He died as a result of his injury.

The Montgomery County Coroner’s Office hasn’t released a specific cause of death.

After speaking with witnesses, detectives learned the 15-year-old victim, who resided at the Dingman residence, was allegedly stabbed by another 15-year-old boy who went to the Dingman residence along with three others to challenge the victim and an acquaintance of the victim to a fight.

The suspect was allegedly upset about a disrespectful text message that was sent to the suspect’s girlfriend. As a result of the incident, the 15-year-old suspect was charged with one count of murder. The youth suspect, whose name hasn’t been released by authorities, was transported to West Central Juvenile Detention Facility in Troy.
