Police said Weed attacked by a 15 and 16-year-old after he refused to give them a dollar.

The judge denied the State’s waiver motion to move the juvenile to adult court jurisdiction, concluding the 16-year-old’s case should remain in the juvenile system.

The State had filed the waiver petition on both juveniles which alleges that based on a “number of factors” the particular youths should be tried as adults, rather than in juvenile court.

The 15-year-old has been charged with manslaughter, first-degree assault and two counts of second-degree assault, and his brother, the 16-year-old, has been charged with two counts of second-degree assault.
