9-Year Old Charged with Manslaughter

A nine-year old girl who stabbed her 11-year old friend in the chest with a knife, and killed her, after the two argued over possession of a ball has been charged with manslaughter in NY.  A spokesman for the Brooklyn DA's office has said the case will go to family court because the girl is under 14.  Story . . .  [Mark Godsey]
