In the UK, a 14-year-old is said to have murdered a 12-year-old boy. The teenager had been charged with murder, police said in Lincolnshire, England. In addition, a 19-year-old, who was arrested with the suspect over the weekend, remains in custody.
The boy’s body was discovered Saturday in Fishtoft, Boston County. The police initially did not provide further details about the crime. The victim would have turned 13 on Monday.
“I assure the public that we are doing everything we can to thoroughly investigate how this boy was killed,” said Marty Parker of Lincolnshire Police.
