Trial date set for 2 charged in fatal Howard high assault Esteban Parra, The News Journal
A June trial date has been scheduled for two of the three 16-year-old girls charged in the fatal assault of a Howard High School of Technology student last month in Wilmington.
Both Zion Snow and Chakeira Wright were set to have a hearing Thursday morning. But after their attorneys waived the arraignment hearings, a trial date was scheduled in Family Court for June 15. The two girls are charged with third-degree criminal conspiracy, which is punishable by up to one year in prison.
Nice tactic on the lawyers part! Speedy trial in case charges are upgraded! Get it over-with June 15 and take the 3 years probation and counseling and girls can’t be retried! Double Jeopardy card sits in the legal eagle’s back-pocket !
Because neither of the other two girls hit Amy nor had prior arrests, prosecutors have said the two will be tried as juveniles in Family Court.
And Amy never killed before stays dead forever! O wait ! My bad! she died from a heart-attack!
Investigators determined the fight was a planned confrontation in the girls bathroom, but only Carr hit Amy, according to a statement by the state Attorney General’s Office.
