Judge Meets With Attorneys In Case of Fatal Bathroom Fight

WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) — A judge is holding a scheduling conference with attorneys in the case of three teens charged after a high school bathroom fight that left a 16-year-old girl dead.

Tuesday’s conference comes after the judge ruled last month that a 16-year-old girl facing the most serious charge, criminally negligent homicide, would not be tried as an adult, leaving all three defendants to be tried as juveniles.

The girl is accused of repeatedly hitting Amy Joyner-Francis in an April 21 attack at Wilmington’s Howard High School of Technology. Two other girls are charged with conspiracy in planning the fight, which was recorded on a cellphone.

An autopsy found that Joyner-Francis, who had a heart condition, died of sudden cardiac death, with physical and emotional stress from physical assault  as contributing factors.
