PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. – The teen accused of murder and attempted murder in a Palm Beach Gardens stabbing earlier this month is now being charged as an adult.
Corey B. Johnson, 17, of Jupiter was formally charged on Thursday with three felony counts: one count of first degree murder with a deadly weapon and two counts of attempted first-degree murder with a deadly weapon.
A grand jury found there was enough evidence to charge him as an adult in the deadly stabbing of 13-year-old Jovanni Sierra on March 12.
Johnson is also accused of attempting to murder Elaine Simon and Dane Bancroft.
A judge denied bond during a Friday morning court hearing.
