Three teenage girls have been charged in the assault that became deadly at a Delaware school. 16-year-old Amy Inita Joyner-Francis died in a bathroom at school after a brawl broke out in the bathroom. This happened at Howard High School of Technology in Wilmington, Delaware to be exact.
A 16-year-old was charged with criminally negligent homicide and 2 others were charged with third-degree criminal conspiracy.The State Department of Justice went on to say:
“The individuals responsible for Amy Joyner-Francis’s death are minors, but they must be held accountable for their actions.”
The DOJ says Joyner-Francis died of sudden cardiac death, with a contributing factor of physical and emotional stress because of the physical assault that happened prior. They also said:
“In layman’s terms, the medical examiner determined that Amy died from a cardiac incident that she was vulnerable to because of a pre-existing heart condition, but the cardiac incident would not have occurred if she had not been assaulted.”
