UPDATE: Three Teens Charged in Death of Delaware Girl
- May 10, 2016
Three teenage girls have been charged in connection with the death of Amy Joyner-Francis, who died after an assault in a school bathroom. The examiner says, "Amy died from a cardiac incident that she was vulnerable to because of a pre-existing heart condition, but the cardiac incident would not have occurred if she had not been assaulted." One student has been charged with criminally negligent homicide and two other students were charged with third-degree criminal conspiracy for allegedly helping to plan the deadly April 21 attack on Amy Joyner-Francis, according to a statement released by the Delaware Department of Justice.
