The Gleaner: JAMAICA – A 17-year-old boy has been charged with murder and wounding with intent following the stabbing death of 20-year-old Catholic College of Mandeville student, Akeilia White, on Monday.

The Mandeville police say about 11:50am, an argument developed between White and another student while they were in a classroom at the school.

The 17-year-old boy reportedly left the area and returned with a knife, which he allegedly used to inflict wounds to White’s upper body and shoulder and the male student’s back.

White and the injured boy were taken to hospital where she was pronounced dead and the other student received treatment.

The accused, who was held shortly after the incident and handed over to the police, was charged later the same day.

He was taken to the Mandeville Parish Court and was remanded until June 4.
