Police Say Jealousy Over Girl Sparked School Knife Attack
Authorities say jealousy over a girl sparked a 16-year-old sophomore's knife attack on another boy at a Southern Indiana high school.
The 16-year-old victim freshman was expected to make a full recovery from the 4-inch cute to his neck he suffered in Monday's attack during a study hall at Jennings County High School.
According to court documents, the boy charged in the attack told police he carried in out after seeing photos on his girlfriend's laptop of the other boy, whom she once dates. He also claimed the other boy would not leave the girl alone.
A judge ordered the sophomore to remain in juvenile detention on a preliminary charge of attempted murder until at least next week, when a hearing is planned on whether he will face adult charges in the attack at the school about 60 miles south of Indianapolis.
