As reported by gazette.net, Maryland Community News Online, a Prince George’s County teen was indicted on Thursday, March 14, 2013, in the death of an 18-year-old. According to Bill Miller, spokesman for the District of Columbia Attorney’s Office, the accused teen is being charged as an adult in the stabbing attack.
The incident occurred in the Woodley Park Metro station in Adams Morgan last November. The victim died at a local hospital from injuries sustained. A grand jury in District of Columbia Superior Court indicted the teen, charging him with a series of charges: armed robbery, conspiracy, assault with significant injury of a person, assault with a dangerous weapon, a firearms offense, and, most seriously, with felony murder.
Miller said that the victim was on his way home after being robbed earlier in the night in Adams Morgan. According to the indictment, the victim confronted the individuals in the Woodley Park Metro station who had robbed him earlier. The stabbing occurred at approximately 1:15 a.m. on November 17th, 2013 inside the Woodley Park Metro station.
Another man is alleged to have committed the actual stabbing of the victim according to authorities. He was charged with first-degree premeditated murder while the most recently charged teen and five others have been indicted on charges of felony murder, according to Miller. The most recent teen charged makes a total of seven. All have been charged as adults in the attack.
