Trial Postponed For Girl, 15, Charged In Slaying

BALTIMORE (WJZ/AP) — A 15-year-old Baltimore girl is facing trial on first-degree murder charges.

The trial for Arteesha Holt was set to begin Tuesday morning in Baltimore Circuit Court, but was postponed until next week.

Police said Holt shot Jose Gonzalez-Coreas and another man during a robbery attempt in August after the men laughed at her because she was so young. Gonzalez-Coreas was hit in the head and died a week later. The other man suffered a graze wound. Holt was 14 at the time.

A request by Holt’s defense to move her case to juvenile court was denied in May.
