A 16-year-old was on Monday charged with murder in the stabbing death of T.A. Thompson Junior High School student Perry Rolle Jr.
The suspect, whose name and address have been withheld because he is a minor, appeared before Senior Magistrate Carolyn Vogt-Evans on a charge of murder.
The teen appeared before the court with his guardian and attorney Ramona Farquharson-Seymour and was not required to enter a plea to the charge.
Rolle was stabbed in the chest when he got into a fight while walking home from school on Pitt Road.
The student accused of his murder was not required to enter a plea to the charge and has been remanded to prison.
His case is expected to be fast-tracked to the Supreme Court by a voluntary bill of indictment on May 7.
