SPRINGFIELD, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio county prosecutor is seeking to try a 15-year-old girl accused of fatally stabbing a friend’s mother as an adult.
The Springfield News-Sun reports Clark County Prosecutor Dan Driscoll in a motion filed Wednesday said the 15-year-old isn’t "amenable to care or rehabilitation in the juvenile system." A judge will decide whether the teen should be bound over to adult court.
The teen and the slain woman’s 13-year-old daughter both face the juvenile equivalent of murder and felonious assault charges. The 13-year-old’s father and teen brother were wounded in the May 23 attack.
Authorities say the girls conspired after the 13-year-old’s parents told her she couldn’t meet with the friend anymore.
The 13-year-old can’t be tried as an adult because of her age.
Both have pleaded not guilty.
