FREDERICK, Md. — The 16-year-old suspect involved in an attack that killed a man at the Great Frederick Fair will remain in the juvenile system pending the conclusion of proceedings.
The 15-year-old suspect is charged with manslaughter, 1st degree assault, and 2nd degree assault.
According to officials, during a waiver hearing on Friday, prosecutors made an argument for the two of them to be charged as adults.
The Judge denied the State’s waiver motion for the 16-year-old co-respondent in a written opinion February 18th.
The Judge will issue his order for the 15-year-old next week.
