Teen Convicted In Fatal Attack Of Amy Joyner-Francis

A judge has convicted two of three girls charged in the death of 16-year-old Amy Joyner-Francis, the teen who died after she was brutally attacked in the bathroom of a Delaware high school last April.

17-year-old girl Trinity Carr was convicted of criminal negligent homicide by Family Court Judge Robert Coonin on Thursday.

The two other girls were charged with criminal conspiracy. One was acquitted and the other was convicted because video showed her kicking Amy during the attack.

When reading his verdict, Judge Coonin said:

While it may be true that Amy Joyner-Francis, due to her condition, would have died from a multitude of stressors, until such an event occurred, if at all, she had a right to live one more day, one more week, one more month or year, until her time, without a contributing cause of another.

The convicted teens will be sentenced on May 23.
